Short, but Sweet

I have tons to tell you all, but I am so pooped that I think I will just post some pictures and get to bed! Nastya was sick today with a fever, so we didn't get to see her. We sure hope she is better tomorrow!

Try to figure out the settings on this washing machine!

Guess what this is? Mayo! Nothing comes in a jar here.

Hmmmmm....who are you? My sister!

Our bus stop on the way home. We have to say "Bowl - neat - sa" which means hospital because the orphanage is next to the hospital. Once the bus driver asked us something (we have no idea what) and several people helped us out and answered him. Everyone really has a sense of community here. It turns out there are several hospitals, so he was asking which one we wanted to go to.

Nastya loves snacks and Moira likes to play with the bag!

This picture was from yesterday.

Tommorow I'll tell you all about how we order food without words!

  2. The girls are SO precious! And, so fragile. They need you badly. I have been Praying for you and for your kiddo's at home. I really hope the time passes quickly and you'll all be together.
