What a pleasant surprise to find your site when I Googled Evan Bucklin and expected to find some items about my nephew who is in college. I found I was captivated by your site. Your Evan is wonderfully precious and so many good pics. My faves are the bathing ones - so purely evoking the loving care of a child. My very fave pic was of mom and Evan teaching each other to copy sticking out their tongues. It seems to be such a bond showing through already.
The blog was great. I admire how dad was able to capture so many different parts of Russion life and carefully being non-judgemental - just reporting observations. I am so glad to have happened upon your site and I wish happy blessings to your family.

We are praying for an uneventful flight home with a sleeping Evan!
Your son is adorable. My kind of way to have a baby, no big bellies (yes, I am abdominal obsessed) and no labor. Let someone else do the heavy lifting.
I loved Scott's blog. I understand a lot of what he is saying. We, the yoga studio where I used to teach, had a summer intern from Russia for two summers. She was shopping crazed. Yes, did dress a little slutty as well as act a little slutty too. The yoga studio at least influenced her to a healthier lifestyle. She gave up smoking.
At the public library where I worked in Milwaukee, we had a large Russian clientele. They were extremely pushy. I guess they were used to long bread lines.
Lastly, my friend worked at a Russian restaurant in Milwaukee. Every table that had a group of Russians automatically got a big bottle of vodka placed on the table at the start of the meal.
One thing I can say about every Russian I ever met, is they were all very educated.
Congratulations!!! Sounds like things are going smooth and you will be on your way home soon. My what great pictures and a fantastic experience.
