A year ago yesterday, our friend Katya from St. Petersburg arrived with her mom, Rachael, on US soil! She met her brothers and sister, and has ever since been referred to as "Katya in Michigan" by my girls. (All the Katyas floating around tend to complicate things a bit).
My friend Rachael posted the cutest video of Katya singing this popular Russian lullaby today. It's from "Good Night, Children," a very, very popular children's television program that is on every night from 8:50 to 9:00 p.m. (As I've said before, Russian kids go to bed later than their American peers... NO ONE is in bed asleep before nine, at least no one I've ever met... People used to think I was strange for making my kids go to bed earlier than that...).
You can check out Katya's singing on her mom's blog--but here is the original for all to enjoy. Isn't the claymation neat?
