This is the beginning of a series of videos that I will be posting from our trips to Russia when we adopted Anna and Sveta back in 2005. I promise to keep them under five minutes..... this one is only a minute and a half.
John took this video of us when we ate our first meal together as a family..... with no one else around. We were able to be ourselves, without having to worry if we were parenting two of Russia's children right. Did anybody else get the feeling, that you couldn't be yourself until you were back on American soil?
It is sweet to watch how little they were back then. My, how they have grown since this video was taken. All of our attempts to speak each others language is quite amusing, but I think we did pretty good.
