The First Year

It is hard to believe that it has been over a year since Anna arrived and began her new life here.

It seems like only yesterday when I drove to Seattle to meet her at the airport and bring her to her new home.

On July 22nd we celebrated Anna's first year in America.

The year passed very quickly and was filled with many new experiences for Anna and the Children.

The children started their second full year of school in America and according to their teachers they are doing exceptionally well.

Anna is still working on developing her English skills. She attended English classes over the last year and she is currently using the Pimsleur Approach to expand her English skills. In fact, we are finding that we rely less and less on Google Translator.

On Sunday Anna and I will celebrate our first Anniversary. It is hard to believe it has been a full year since we exchanged our wedding vows at the courthouse.

We have certainly come a long way since the first "Privet Anna!" 3 years ago from September 15th. That is a date we will never forget. It was a day our lives changed forever.

As they say, Time flies when you're having fun. To say it has been fun would be an understatement. It has truly been the best year of my life.

It has been a wonderful year for us and we look forward to the many more to come.

Happy Anniversary Anna!
