They had a little area set up with for the kids...probably one of their favorite things about the aquarium.
Missionaries kids are so good at going with the flow...
(The picture is a little blurry, but I LOVED his little smile.)
This is the longest we have been away from home and I must admit I am so anxious to get back. Not only do I miss my own bed, routine (or something like it), regular home cooked meals (can you believe I'm already sick of Pizza Hut, Burger King, KFC and Subway....well, maybe not totally sick of them...), and I long to hear people speaking in Russian. Even though Polish is similar in sound, it is still very strange to my ears. When someone talks to me I am at a loss as to what to say and end up replying in mixed English/Russian. AND we still have until next Friday! It has been a nice vacation though, nights have been a little rough because of the bars surrounding us, and I have enjoyed visiting with the Glass family, the missionary family here in Poland. It has been a year since we have seen another missionary family. (We are kinda home bodies, so we don't travel unless we have to...besides, there is so much work to do that we never feel we can leave...a plus of a forced vacation.) I have also enjoyed having more time to spend with my husband. But even with all of that...I'm ready to be home. This vacation has given me time to plan some things I'd like to accomplish -with the language, home, ministry... I always go back renewed, energized and ready to work.
