Thanks to the recommendation of a dear friend, we bought two photo albums made particularly for babies and toddlers. How wonderful would it be if, when we are united with them at the beginning of trip #2, they recognize our faces as Mommy and Daddy?! Or, I guess I should say, "Mama" and "Papa."
Here's a peek at two of the photos with Cyrillic explanations of who we are:
"Papa" & "Mama"
"sobaka 'Bella'" & "sobaka 'Lexie'"
The pre-travel To Do List is still rather long. Time to sign off!
