He's here!

Sasha has arrived!

I know you have all been anxiously awaiting and checking my blog every 3.2 seconds for new.  No?

Our first evening has been uneventful so far.
We waited at the airport for about an hour for him to get through customs.

We met him.

We said some things.  He smiled.

He said something.  We smiled.

We left.

We got home, Alex taught him how to use the shower (they don't have regular showers over there.  You don't want to know how they generally bathe) and he showered.

We said a few things via Google Translator.

We asked him if he was hungry.






So he's in bed.

At least he's not having a hard time adjusting!

I am sure you were expecting something a little more exciting.  I mean really, traveling halfway across the world and then going to sleep!?  :)  I wish I had more to say, but I'm with Sasha.  I need to go to bed.  I'm exhausted, physically and emotionally, but looking forward to what lies ahead for us starting bright and early tomorrow!

As he has basically no clothes with him and arrived wearing dress shoes, we'll be out shopping tomorrow for some essentials.

I will also try and take a few photos and with update you with the funny comments I anticipate Melody making in regards to Sasha's arrival.

And, I'm sure you will have fun shopping tomorrow, too!

Have fun shopping! I hope he has a blast the next few weeks. :)

He's probably getting some good sleep, especially after the shower! Enjoy.

Wow, I bet its all really overwhelming for him. Especially considering he can't speak English. I can't wait to hear the next update :)

Glad he arrived safely. I would guess the little guy would be tired. Can't wait to see pictures & hear the continued story. How fun.
