Singing Along With the Beatles

Yes!  I am going “Back to the USSR” – or more politically correctly, I am going back to the Russian Federation!   It’s finally time to meet Baby Soup!

I’ll be leaving on February 19th, arriving in country on February 20th and heading back home on February 24th.  Aunt “Whonda” will be my chaperone, once again.  I don’t know who is more excited, me or her. 

Am I ready?  Hmmm, good question.  I think so.  I have been preparing for this day since last March, and really in overdrive since September.  I learned a lot about “counting eggs before they hatch” during T’s adoption…. so I’ll be leaving myself LOTS to do between trips #1 and #2/#3.  

Excited.  Nervous.  Etc.  The whole gambit of emotions!

More to come…  however, I’ll leave you with a picture (or 3) of Snowmaggedon, 2011.
