Nearly done!

I promise to post more pictures tomorrow. . .everything is just a lot more expensive here in Moscow, so free is good!

Arbat was fun yesterday. Aidan was pretty good, too! We only had one minor meltdown where we had to scold him and that was because he wanted to hit Pat--he was hungry and tired, so I don't think that will be a behavior that is lasting. . .He loved being out and about all day and was really good at bedtime again. In fact, he practiclly fell asleep before we got him in his bed!

We're really ready to go home now. Soon! All we have left is our Consulate work. . .

Observations about Russia:

Russians stare and laugh at us Americans because we wear white sneakers. . .and yet they wear gold sneakers or spike heels everywhere!

It seems like everything is paved in Russia. . .

It's been nearly 20 years since the end of the Soviet Union as we used to know it and yet many of the buildings still carry the Hammer and the Sickle symbol. . .what's up with that???

Until tomorrow,


Stacy, Pat and Aidan

I love the "hammer and sickle" observation, Stacy. It actually crossed my mind too...and then I recalled how many Confederate flags I still see in the South of the United States. Old habits die hard I guess.
