The sweet purple hat for Zoya was hand knitted by 10 year old Liesel. Isn't she amazingly talented? She did not learn this great skill from me but rather from her grandmother. Thanks Oma.
This is John's niece Heather who will accompany him and Liesel tomorrow on trip #2. The original plan was that I was going to go with Heather but that planned CHANGED a couple of weeks into trip #1, when we had been in the country for two weeks and I still couldn't find my way from the subway station to our apartment!! So sorry Heather that we couldn't have the girls' getaway like we planned, but at least Uncle John will make sure you don't get lost. Something that I could not guarantee.
John promised he would blog for me while he is away, so look for updates. We are all so excited to be together at last!
