So today was our last visit with the kids. Tomorrow we have court at 9:30 in the morning. As long as everything goes well, tomorrow night we leave here and take the overnight train back to Kiev to take care of some things at the embassy so that I can come back and bring the kids home without Steve. We fly home on Thursday, April 7. We had Tatiana explain to Aaron that we are going home and that I will come back. He said he will not cry while I'm gone. So cute. Today I got Julia laughing again. It is so wonderful to hear an all out full belly laugh out of her. It is so sweet. We video taped it again, but it is still not working for us to upload videos onto the blog. We are so bummed. When we get home we will find a way to post them. Aaron has learned so many English words and is starting to use them with me. He knows: mama, dada, mama help, mama fix it, good boy, hello, I love you, bye-bye, mama open, close it. He is also very good at picking up the toys he plays with, even without being told. Amazing! He will learn some bad habits from our kids at home. Hopefully they can learn to be better about this from him. He is very polite too. Today I helped him tie a string around a toy for him. After I was finished he took the toy and said in Russian, "Thank you mama." Such a sweet boy!
