The Russians Are Coming

Posted on

My apologies for the lack of blog posting.  The last couple of days have been busy with preparations, along with desperate resting. Tomorrow we will welcome 27 Russian children, probably between the ages of 8 and 12.  It’s going to be an intense 10 days, followed by our journey back home (losing 6 hours).  So we’ve taken every possible opportunity to relax and rest.

2013-06-18 13.29.00Today was also Ethan’s 6th birthday!  Thanks to April’s help shopping,  I was able to make Ethan’s favorite cake for him for today and we gave him a Lego set.  He also received a Lego set from the Korytkowski’s and several chocolate-based gifts from our new friends!  He will get a small party with friends his own age when we return, but at least we were able to celebrate today!  Thank you to everyone who helped make that happen.

The other great excitement of the day was Mala’s arrival!  She seems to have had good travels and we are so happy to have her with us.  She’s going to be a great addition to this team.

I will try my best to keep up with posting during this camp!
