Cant Wait For Tomorrow!!!

Tomorrow we get to return to the orphanage to see our little princess.
We are soo excited. It has been since Monday that we were able to see her, so we can not wait to love on her.
Last night we were able to enjoy authentic tasting Mexican, it was really nice. They also had a live band and they would sing American songs that we could understand every 2-3 songs, so it was nice.
Today we slept in a little. It was nice, very peaceful and the sun was shining in our apartment. We decided to try the sushi restaurant that Nadya said was good, CywuR (sp?) something like that. We did not eat sushi, not our thing :), but we did try the crab potato thingies, which were good. And we both had the fried rice. It was a nice change from the usual. We drink the Coke Light in the bottle and not one place we have been to do they serve it cold. Anyone knows me they know I need my fountain diet coke, so the bottle is just not as good! ;0

We ventured to the market again. We were getting low on stuff and did not know when we were leaving. So since we will be here another week, we stocked up on some stuff. Laundry detergent, soap, toothpaste, water, and Coke Light. We even were a little adventurous today and tried some new things. We bought yogurt, ice cream and milk. Joe is such a milk drinker at home, so it has been almost 2 weeks without it now. So we bought the Moloko, he says it takes just like milk!
Tomorrow we will start to go back to the orphanage. We will go again on Saturday and hopefully convince them to let us come on Sunday!
I think once we start into next week the time is gonna fly. Nadya is taking us shopping on Monday to buy some souveniers for the kids. On Tuesday we are going to the US Consulate for me to sign papers so that Joe can return by himself. Then on Wed. is court and packing, and then Thursday we leave to come home!! Hopefully we will get to see Olga everyday next week and Wed. after court. It will be so hard to say goodbye to her and leave her here, especially after Wed. when they announce her our daughter!!
Im soo excited to have her home the begginning of May. To enjoy the summer with all three kiddos!! We are both excited to let her begin to melt everyones hearts like she has ours.

Not sure why they paint the trees white at the bottom, but we have actually seen them doing it

Beuatiful statues and buildings

The yogurt is super yummy, this one is strawberry and they are in little glass jars!


  1. YES! Court is soon, you're settling in, AND you should get to see the princess TOMORROW! God is good!

    We got your email...promise we'll chat soon!

    Thanks for the cool pics! I love seeing where you're at! Soak it up!

    Love you guys!

    P.S. Are the trees painted to stop bugs from crawling up and infesting the tree?

  2. I never went to a Sushi restaurant and I do like it! Can you believe that?
    As for the trees, it s not paint :) It has a something" that prevents certain "bugs" to climb up and kill the trees. It is very common to see this in 3rd world countries.

  3. I'm so glad you get to see her again soon! It must be nice too to have an idea of when your coming home now. It won't be long until that cutie is home too.
