Snow and cold in Oskemen on Thursday

Thursday…snow and cold in Oskemen

25 October is a national holiday of some sort for the Republic of Kazakhstan. So we were only able to visit Daniel in the morning. He was so excited with the make shift Nija Turtle outfit, watched a Nija movie in Russian, played Tic Tac Toe, stickers, and tried a new puzzle.

We sure enjoy each and every visit with Daniel. Our official bonding period ends on Sunday, and then by next Tuesday we should know when our court day will be. Here’s the latest photo of the Madison Family.

We did wake up to some snow this morning, and it was colder. Sure would be great to see the sun again…

GREAT picture! It brought a big smile to my face. Nice looking family!!!!!!
BTW...oops...I forgot to tell you that it DOES snow in Kaz. in October, but did you get to see their renditions of the snowplow and snow shovels? They are quite creative and something that adds more color to your experience! You will have many stories and smiles to share, I'm sure!!!!

Great picture of the Madison family! Looks like a great start for a new family. After all those years in Houghton, you should not be concerned about a few snowflakes this time of year. Maybe your time spent in Chicagoland has thinned your blood. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.
