Update from the girls

 As is often the case , the girls hit the ground running , in fact they did not even wait to hit the ground .  As soon as they reached the Moscow airport, Bekah began making arrangements for when they arrived , complete with setting up Dr's appointments for some of the kids that she knew were not feeling well .  They landed at 5:15 am and by 9 am they were in full swing. 

  Before we left in the spring, I had arranged a day up at the lake with everyone when we got back , A time of rest for them, a time of jet leg for us and a time to have a good visit before getting back to work .. We were sad not to be able to make it, but the girls had a great time with everyone .

Yesterday the girls were at the bazaar , starting the back to school shopping with Emma's kids .  The bazaar was not as bad as we thought it would be , there is just one main section that is destroyed by fire , but Emma says that they are already busy cleaning it up . 

Today she had Aibek and his little cousin shopping . Monday she will have Victor and a few others .
