Last day in Nikopol

It’s finally here: the last full day in Nikopol. This afternoon we’ll visit the orphanage one last time and celebrate with Carol and John at….you guessed it: Celentano!

The twins day 7 and 9 004 I organized the girl’s clothes and did some laundry this morning. Surprisingly, Isaac slept some more, which gave me some time with Isabella to wash clothes in the bath. She then helped pack some stuff (she is addicted to bags!). We went for our last morning walk and coffee and then had a good lunch. I prepared a 2 egg omelet with chicken and tomatoes for each of them. They munched all of it. I had the last piece of pork strip, 2 fried eggs and a grilled tomato with some bread. Finally, a manly meal sitting down while they watched the infamous video once again! I finally felt on top of this daddy-thing :)

So the passports are in my shorts. I go around with them and mine everywhere. I’m getting paranoid that I’ll forget them. This way I have to leave in underwear to leave them behind, and I think someone would say something! Our taxi comes at 10:30am and we should make it to Kiev by around 5:30pm. We’ll shop for some snacks tonight so I can keep them occupied for the long trip. Carol was very kind to buy the kids a backpack filled with little toys and things to keep them distracted. It’ll make them feel more comfortable during the next very hectic days in Kiev.

Congratulations! Those passports are truly beautiful to see. I'm so thrilled for you all. I can't wait for you to be back home...prepare for some major heat. My car temp reached 109F (43C) the other day, but at least you'll have AC!

Well done my friend! I bet Lori is so excited to see you all.

Yep she's very excited but yesterday and the early part of today was very nerve wrecking as we hung there not knowing what was going to happen with visas and travel. I'm not looking forward to this year's heat in Houston!!
