Our Last Day in Astrakhan

Today was our last full day in Astrakhan. Tomorrow we will be flying to Moscow. Our flight leaves at 12:30 pm. We spent the day packing and bought a few last minute souveniers. We can't go outside for very long because it is cold. We have heard that it is already snowing in Moscow. I would post pictures of what a hotel room looks like after you have lived there for 4 weeks but I am too embarassed. I think Nolen is getting a little stir crazy. We are running out of ways to entertain him and haven't been able to go on many walks. He loves to watch a movie we brought about farm animals. We have seen it at least twice a day for the past week.
We are looking forward to making it one step closer to home. Moscow has some familiar places to eat such as McDonalds and TGI Fridays. We are ready for some familiar food. I most likely will not be posting after this because we are not sure what internet we will have there. Internet there is expensive and we should be busy. While there we will have an interview and a doctors appointment at the US embassy. After that Nolen will receive his immigrant visa into America.
Please keep us in your thoughs and prayers as we are traveling half way around the world with a toddler. Also pray for the other people on the plane with us.
Thank you for thinking of us and following us on this amazing adventure. The journey is just beginning.
