Day 16 (1 day down 9 to go)

Day 1 down only 9 more to go. Today we had a great visit with the girls. It was Andrew's last day with them until we come home.:( The girls knew something was up because they were clingy and then they were testing waters today. It is so funny to see them doing it. Andrew was really sad to go, and I was really sad to see him go, not only for me but def for the girls. Ellee asks for him everyday when I go in to get her. We switch up one of us goes and gets Ellee while the other one goes and get Johannah. They are both full fledged daddies girls.They are going to miss him terribly. We had a great surprise today. A few college kids came to the orphanage and put on a puppet show. It was super cute. It was in Russian but we knew that it was the story of "Little Red Riding Hood" The kids really enjoyed it and so did we. I tried to add pics but they wouldn't load correctly so just take my word for it was cute. ;)

Andrew got on the train about 4:50 this evening and won't arrive in Kiev until 8:50 in the morning. He will stay there tomorrow and Monday. Monday he has an appointment at the Embassy, and would have loved to fly out Monday but they don't have flights in the afternoon, so he wasn't able to get a flight until Tuesday, but he will be home Tuesday evening because he gains 8 hours back. Please pray for safe travels for him over the course of the next few days.

Now onto the good stuff right... It's pretty much all about daddy and the girls today...
