Home, Home, Home!

We have been home for almost four weeks now. Both children are in school and like it very much. The children are amazing! They embrace everything with gusto and want to learn English and participate in school. Michael is making new friends every day. He's made so many that he can't remember all of their names so he writes them down in his notebook in Russian so he can tell me. Elizabeth has made many friends too. There is a Ukrainian girl in her class that has been in the US for two years. She speaks English and Russian and has been very good to Elizabeth. They are friends and we look forward to meeting her family. Elizabeth came home from school last week with an invitation to a birthday party. She is always excited to meet new people and try new things.

Thank you for all of the Mother's Day cards and emails! My first Mother's Day was wonderful!

Love the pictures! Have you seen our new video? Karina has that same pink shirt! Haven't been able to talk her out of wearing so many clips yet, huh? LOL

PS - Better not tell Karina you have a pool. She'll want to come to your house everyday!!:0

Oh my gosh! I am crying my eyes out for joy (you know I have always cried easy... commercials, songs, etc.) I am so happy to see an update of your beautiful family! It is so wonderful that they are doing so well. We will be in Houston soon and I can't wait to meet your children and see you both. Thanks so much for keeping your blog updated for those of us so far, far away.
Your BFF, Becky and her trusty sidekick, Mike :)
