We have been home a couple of days now. We arrived at Hobby airport at almost Midnight on Thursday. A huge THANK YOU to Bob for picking us up so late on short notice. We are so thankful to be home. The kids have been sleeping well and eating well. Thank you to everyone who blogged along with us keeping our spirits up when we were feeling blue.
I will post later with details about our last couple of days in Kiev. We didn't know what we were doing until it happened regarding the visas. We also flew to JFK without a flight to Houston so we didn't know how we were going to get home. Everything worked out, but it was very stressful. Of course now that we are home, it doesn't seem like it was as bad as I thought it was:-). We ran in to the couple from St. Louis at the US Consulate, but I did not get their email or phone informaiton. They were headed to the Crimea region on Wednesday (4/23).
The kids are sitting outside playing with the dogs. Julie's dog, Joey, undertands Russian now . Ok, he acts like he understands Elizabeth when she gives him commands. Max remains low key and sits around waiting for the kids to come to him.
Life is wonderful!
