Remember our wonderful visit with Will on June 30 when he was at camp in Sudogda? The CD that includes photos from that day has made its way to my parents in Florida, so Mom is going to post some photos for me. When you see photos start popping up here, that's what they're from. Thanks, Mom!
Also, remember how I said that Raia thinks puddles are heaven? Today I let her loose in the puddles outside our apartment. Everyone who walked by expressed concern that she would catch cold, but no one really fussed at me, so I was happy. And Raia was more than happy! She got so filthy, that when it was time to bring her in, I had to yell for Will to throw down a rag for me to wrap her in, before I could even pick her up. One of the grandmothers I talk to often saw Raia playing and her comment was that this was "kaif," which is a kind of slang word that means a drug high, among other things. (Yes, she's young grandmother. )
