|Farewell party with tea and cakes. In addition to the children, there were 5 MN family segments also there joining in the celebration.|
Another MN family who is here got the wonderful news on Friday that their court date is on Monday. They and the two children they are adopting were thrilled (they have been here for over 5 weeks so they have been waiting for this day for a long time!).
We enjoyed time with Kirill at the orphanage. Every time we are there he asks us about school and he is wondering if he has to go the next day. (Note: in a previous blog we believed that he was done with the school year but we have learned that is not the case - we think it goes until the end of May.) Most of the other families who have been here recently have withdrawn their child(ren) from school but we have chosen to leave Kirill in school for now. He is done by 1:45 pm each day so we still get a few hours with him each day and there will be days where we will ask that he not be sent to school that day. Kirill clearly does not like his parents decision in regards to him still attending school!
|Will Kirill be happy or sad when he finds out he doesn't have to wear a suit to school in America? Some of the kids are very dressed up for school and others are not. We haven't asked why that is. (New fashion statement - Nikes with a suit?)|
Here are a few more pictures:
