I've already sent this photo to a few people, but it's so funny and such a common sight now, that I'm posting it here. Raia sucks her pointer finger; she's decided that Asya needs the next finger.
Thank you to those of you who are praying for Will. He found a place that does AIDS tests really fast, so he'll be heading to Ukraine tonight, which should cut a day off of the length of his trip. Hurrah! Keep praying that everything else will go just as well.
We're doing well here. We woke up to an unusual fall-winter beauty this morning. The birch trees haven't dropped their golden leaves yet, but they were all powdered with snow! We've been talking a lot about seasons lately, so I keep catching Jaan and Raia at the window, arguing:
"Look, it's winter!"
They're full of plans for skiing and sledding. . . .
