Afternoon with Americans

Yesterday after our fellowship meeting, we went with a bunch of the young people from our group and 6 young people from America who had helped in 2 different English camps. The first week they helped out at our groups’ English camp and then the next week they helped out with another groups’ camp. English camps and camps in general are very popular here during the summer months. The Americans stayed in groups of 2 at different people’s houses and in their free time, which I don’t think was very much, they were able to go sightseeing.

Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

We posted a video of the changing of the guards a while ago, but it’s neat to watch. See if you can march like them and then do it in unison with someone else.


Bye, Bye Grammy

Early this morning at 4:30 AM, Micah and his friend Ruvim drove Darlene to the airport to catch her 7:30 flight back home. We had a good time showing her all around Moscow, and Violet especially had lots of fun playing with her grammy everyday. Here are some pictures from yesterday when Micah and Darlene went back to Red Square to see Lenin’s body, and to visit the History Museum and the Kremlin. Unfortunately, the Kremlin is closed on Thursdays, so they didn’t get to go inside.

Here's a picture I forgot to post earlier of Violet with her necklace that Grammy helped her make

Thanks for coming to visit us Grammy. We had such a fun time with you!


Sightseeing

This past Wednesday night, Micah’s mom got here safe and sound. Violet has really enjoyed having Grammy around to play with all the time. So far we have only been to Red Square and the Cathedral of Christ the Savior Church. But this time we went inside of St. Basil’s at Red Square, which was pretty interesting.
