I just pulled some size 2T clothes out for Keira, that I had kept here that Violet grew out of. They are all from when we first came to Moscow, including the pajamas that Keira is wearing in the video. I remember taking a video of Violet in those same jammies, and it brought back some happy memories.
Here it is…
One way we can tell summer is coming, is from the longer days. Right now this is what it looks like at 9 pm.
…the girls are back to normal, almost. Besides them both having a little bit of a runny nose they are their funny happy little selves. Especially Keira. She’s a new baby, just so happy. I’m so thankful to everyone who was thinking of them this past week.
Well, it has begun. We’ve started going through all of our belongings. Everything is either getting packed to stay here and be saved until we return, getting packed to come back to the states with us, thrown out or given away.
The girls are enjoying playing with these new “toys” we have all over the place now. It keeps them entertained for a bit, which helps when we need to get some things done.
A couple from our fellowship is allowing us to keep most of our things with them, which helps us out a lot. There aren’t really storage areas here and most people have very small apartments, so there aren’t many options for us.
Moving is helping us get rid of some unnecessary things that seem to find there way into the hidden crooks of crannies of our apartment. The week before we leave, we will move our storage items to the other couples apartment. After that we will be doing a deep clean of our apartment.
Please be thinking of us and for our time in Germany at conference before we head back to the states, that it would be a time of encouragement and that it would be profitable in better equipping us for the future.
Tonight my big girl, Violet, is at her first sleepover with her friends Sophia and Marta. It’s actually a bit more than a sleepover. After our play date yesterday, she stayed at their house and is staying there until tomorrow when they come to our house for a play date. I was a little hesitant at first because, not only is it two nights away from us, but they live on the other side of the city about an hour and 15 minutes away by the metro and then a taxi. So it’s not just a ten minute drive to their apartment. But thankfully she is doing great. We were able to talk to her on a skype a few times today. Even though its a lot quieter around here with just Keira, I am miss her a lot and I cannot wait to see her tomorrow.
