|This little beanie baby monkey, MOOCH!!|
Anyway, when I was pulling out random objects for "I Spy", I came upon Mooch, whom I had brought with me from home. Originally, I was thinking of leaving him there for the kids to enjoy. After pulling him out of the bucket though, there's no way I'm leaving that little guy here. I carried him around with me the whole day, and giggled at the familiar rope burns and bald patches that came from too much childhood love. It was a great day :)
After my wonderfully nostalgic day at school, we came home for some Russian lessons with Dima. During lessons, I had a stroke of brilliance - since we're leaving to Prague/Vienna this weekend, we'll have some loooooong bus rides getting there (we're talking 22 hours, folks) so I'll have a chance to study Russian! Oh, the positives of indecently long bus rides.
In other news, Mom is one her way to Lithuania RIGHT NOW! Update for all who'd want to know - she was supposed to get in around 10pm tonight, but has been running into every obstacle possible - Russian visas, bad weather, and missed flights. She called just now on Dima's cell phone, and said she was being put up in a hotel in Oslo, Norway, and flying into Lithuania tomorrow afternoon around noon!! Hopefully, she can get some sleep in, take a break from the frustrations of flying, and make it here tomorrow! Keep her in your prayers, and she should be okay :) So excited to see her TOMORROW!!! :)
