Since we didn't get to see the kids today, we tried to enjoy the chance to explore Krasnoyarsk. We did have to spend quite a bit of time at the notary getting our final papers done before our paperwork was submitted to court this afternoon. It was more time consuming than expected but its done now and we should know by tomorrow morning when we get to come back for court and to bring them home! We spent the morning walking around downtown. We found a grocery store and the large market and to Paul's delight, a coffee place that had "to go" paper cups (something VERY rare in Krasnoyarsk). You do not see everyone walking around with their latte' like you do in the States. After the notary this afternoon, we rented bicylces and rode across the footbridge of the river to a large island that is for walking/biking only. It was beautiful! The week has flown by so quickly. Tomorrow will be our last day with the kids before we return home early Friday morning. Please pray that God would hold them close and keep them safe while we are away and that our travels home will be safe and smooth. We are definatley anticipating the other two cute faces waiting on the other end too. Thank you everyone for all your prayers.
