With the Judge!

Yeah!!!! Our paperwork is finally with the judge. Hopefully we will hear something next week on a court date. They are trying really hard to get us in and out before December when everything shuts down because of the holidays. I will post new pictures of the finished bedrooms (they turned out so cute!). I have started packing for the kids but it is so hard to know how much to pack because we won't know how long we will actually have them while we are in Russia. Thank goodness for laundry machines. I have a feeling I will be using them alot over there. We went to dinner with our friends Joel & Clarion and their two boys Slav and Sergei who are also from Vlad. They are so adorable and were so well behaved. We brought our picture album from our first trip and it was so neat to see the boys looking at it and speaking Russian with each other. I would have loved to know what they were saying. Congratulations also to Cindy who just got home with her beautiful daughter Vika. I just love reading other people's blogs to see how their kids are doing. Please pray that we get news soon and thanks to everyone for their love and support.

Yea! I'm so glad for you. I hope you hear something very soon. It took about 2 weeks and I got news after this point, I think. Be ready to travel soon!
