“…once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act.”
~Proverbs 24:12

We're in Moscow!

We made it to the capital!

The train ride was a great adventure. We just barely made it in time, bourdind the train with three minutes to spare. It was sad to say goodbye to our fantastic driver and translator, but we feel confident we will see them again.

Arriving at the train ternimal, both Derek and I thought we were on our way to Hogwarts. The kids slept pretty well. We had our own 5' by 8' sleeping quarters and were rocked to sleep.

When we arrived in Moscow representatives from our agency met usin our car and helped us with our luggage. Then it was off to see the doctor, Dr. Boris was very impressed with our kiddos' health and development. What proud parents we are!

The hotel here has a very large lobby and so the kids will have more space to play. We've already met several couples also making their last stop before going home, so it looks like we'll have some play dates. We thought the hotel would have a playroom, however it does not, but we're still good! Allfour of u have become a bit more confident to venture out together.

Tomorrow we go to the Embassy to work on their Visas. I hope to check in again tomorrow!

Glad you made it! Everything is a whirlwind, but it will settle down. Once you are HOME :) and settle into a routine, you will soon become old pros! Love you and so excited that you are closer and closer to being home :)

Where are you all staying in Moscow? Did you catch the names of your Driver/Translator? Masha and Pasha were wonderful for our travels.

Really glad this is rolling along so well. Cannot wait to see you all at the end of the week.
