Blast from the past!

Well, it's a new month and you know that means a blast from the past.  So much fun seeing how the kids have transformed over the years. 

 This is Alex from 2005.  Just a year after being home.  He's sitting in what used to be our kitchen.  We had five kids back then.

Don't you just love our green carpet?  Alex's favorite thing back then was Spiderman.  Love Max's expression. They all look like babies back in 2005!

 July 2006.  Max, Bojan and Alex.  They seem so little back then. 

A picture of us all at the end of he Orenburg Reunion in July 2006.  Always have fun going to these places.  Love it!  Believe it or not, we were in process of adopting Alyona and Nik back then.  Crazy, huh?

I know I went out of order.  But just found this.  Alex's 4th birthday party.  Yana is waving.  We were sitting in what was our dining room but is now our kitchen.  our table back then sat 6 people if that tells you anything.  LOL.

 Irina last summer, July 2010, catching up on some medical references.  She's always so much happier away from school.  I do not question our decision to homeschool her this coming year one bit.

This was last year when my boys decided to paint sticks to be warriors. I came outside and found them painting themselves as well!  

Alyona and Yana sharing some music on the MP-3 player.  From July 2010.

Hope you enjoyed that brief blast from the past.  So hard to imagine a time when all 7 weren't here.  It really is.  They always feel like they belong and fit right in.  That's a good thing.  Much more to come tomorrow. I have some wonderful kids that need a home.  If you have not read the previous posts, please do so.  Much info.  I have more kids to talk about tomrrow.  However, 4 posts are enough for a day.  Warren's coming home & kids & us have to go to TJMaxx and Wally World.  Got to go.  Enjoy your evening folks.
