Some Pictures

Things are still going very well here.  Today is a lovely Saturday, beautiful weather-- warm and breezy.  We took a stroll through a few stores on our way to the grocery market.  Picked up some food for the next few days and headed back with our goodies.  I was so thrilled to find a coffee press up in one of the other cabinets the other day!!  Because of that I was able to buy some REAL coffee today!!  Not that instant yuck we have been drinking, but real Italian Espresso!  Ah the simple things in life, a cup of decent coffee and a cookie after lunch.  :)  Really does put things in perspective!

We got a phone call from Marina this afternoon too telling us to turn on the tv.  Since tomorrow is Orthodox Easter there is much preparation and planning going on.  I couldn't make out exactly what she was trying to tell  me, but it was something about a fire being lit at a church, which happens only once a year and sometime before Easter.  She told us to go watch, so we did.  Can't make out what they are saying though of course!

We have a little while before our afternoon visit with Little Man, so I thought I would try to post a few pics of both he and Masha.  We have so many more photos of him because we get to see him so often.  We have only had one real visit with her so far, other than our initial first meeting, and we only get to see her twice a week.  Our next visit with her isn't until Tuesday.  No visits there on the weekends.  :(  It makes me sad that we don't get to see her as much as we do him.  I fear she will be more frightened when we take her out of there to begin our journey home because she won't know us like Atticus does.  I pray for the best, for an easy transition for her and for her to be comfortable with us.

So, pictures...... here they are!!
