Pippi Longstocking in Moscow
I took the girls back to Mir Dyetstva today to see the premier of a play about Pippi Longstocking. It was well done and the actors did a good job of relating to the audience. I only risked whipping out my camera at the very, very end; there probably was a policy against it... I'm including this because I figured that those of you who know Russian would have fun listening.
Afterwards we had dinner there and the girls each made a sculpture. While we waited for our meals, Katya wrote a review (two thumbs up) of the performance in her diary and Natalia practiced writing in her diary, too. I wish they would have let me take a picture of their entries! We have so many of those paper sculptures at home now that I think I'm going to hang them from the ceiling in the dining area the way they do in the shop... It'll really liven up the room. I've noticed that Natalia is increasingly confident during the lessons; she loves the projects so much that she doesn't realize that she's also getting good Russian practice! By the way, it's been great to hear how many of you adoptive families visited the place while you were in Moscow.
