Tomorrow is the big day!! Sasha's flight gets in at 6:15 p.m. Please pray for all the orphans and chaperons traveling. The children from Sasha's orphanage had to endure an 18 hour train ride, on a train that makes Amtrak seem like the most luxurious form of transportation on Earth, followed by a flight to Amsterdam, a layover, and then a flight to Atlanta. Other children had similar, extremely long travel experiences.
We are really looking forward to meeting Sasha and pray that he will adjust quickly to being here. I will definitely keep y'all updated.
In other news, today we enjoyed a snow day! (And in Atlanta a snow day means we had about an hour of flurries.)
The kids ran out on to the Deck to catch snowflakes on their tongues and slide around on the slick surface.
They had blast.
For about 15 minutes...
Charlie didn't even last that long. He was outside for about 5 minutes before he came scampering back in saying, "I cold, Mom!"
Alex and I were the smart ones...we preferred to spend our snow day here instead.
Does this count as a white Christmas?
