Everything falling into place!

What a great day!! We received very reassuring news this morning from our coordinators. The Director at the orphanage is eagerly awaiting our return...and we can't wait to get there, obviously! We then received news that our dear friends from Paris also received their LOI and will be in Petro around the same time.... We can't wait to meet them and their new little one as well. It will be so wonderful to finally chit chat face to face!

We did alot of running around today. Exhausted, but checking off items one at a time. Most importantly, Yannik is now fully vaccinated. We're pretty relieved. It's amazing how supportive people can be when you explain your situation and our special purpose for travelling to Siberia in winter!

Tomorrow, we tackle the packing again....and wait for our visas...Last minute again. A tad unnerving to say the least. You can be sure that we will be tracking the shipping hour by hour! We leave at 5:35 Saturday morning so the visas need to arrive Friday. to try to catch some Zzzzzs since we won't be sleeping much in the week to come.

So happy for you! What a quick time to travel holy smokes where do you find the time to blog?! What a great idea with the Roots Canada hats....I'll be off to buy some of those as I think we will also be travelling in the winter (with any luck!). Maybe try some lightweight fleece rather than sweaters (they are lighter and squishier).

Can't wait to follow along, safe travels.
