We have been in Moscow for a total of 5 days now and are getting a bit more used to getting around. Today Kelly and Matthew and I ventured out on the Metro (the subway system). It is only because I am with world traveler, Kelly, that I would attempt such a fete! We started out this morning in the middle of downtown Moscow and went out to see the Cathedral of Christ our Savior. It is a beautiful Cathedral but a bit frustrating since all the historical facts, etc. are in Russian and we, both being history buffs of sort- well= at least we both taught Social Studies! Anyway- we couldn't read it! Tonight we have spent some time on the internet reading a bit of Russian history for some of our future ventures! Kelly carried Matthew all day in a front pack and since we got off at one stop a bit farther than we had intended- we got lots of walking in. We had to stop and have pizza to recoop and then came home and napped quite a while. So...tonight we will be up reading and updating our blogs. Be sure to check in at Babyjellybeans.com and put in Matthew Hasz for more details from Kelly.
Matthew is doing so well in adjusting to his new life. He had a rather rough day yesterday- but for his first outing and probably first restaurant meal today- he did great. He took his morning nap in the front pack and enjoyed while awake- seemed to be taking in all the sites and sounds of Moscow. He is sleeping and eating well and is a happy little boy. He sings- which is so cute- and smiles often. Tomorrow we will venture out on two different Metro lines to take in a Shopping District. Kelly does not have another "meeting" until Monday when we go to the Ministry of Education and the American Embassy.
We so appreciate all the prayers of you all. Thanks for stopping by!
