We are back in Russia

Thank you for your prayers. Our family arrived safely in Perm 2 weeks ago on December 6th. Jon and I enjoyed our visit to the States. It was great to see so many of you.

It is great to be over jet lag. It took us a week and a half to finally get used to the time here. Perm is 10 hours ahead of Eastern Standard time. The kids had a hard time getting adjusted,therefore Jon and I had a hard time. Who wouldn't be able to adjust especially if you go to bed at a normal time in the dark and wake up in the morning in the dark. =)
The sun has been rising here around 10am every morning and going down around 4:30 in the afternoon.

Jon and I are happy to be home. Caleb was not happy when we arrived because "Russia was without snow",he said. But now there is a thin layer on the ground so life in Russia is what he is used to.

I will post some updated photos of the kids soon. It has been a while since we updated on here.

I'm so glad that you're back in Russia, back to blogging, and had a good visit with friends and family!

A week and a half for jet lag is about right. They say a day for every hour difference, so 10 hours would be ten days of recovery. Glad you're over that, too!
