I simply can’t believe that I had my camera out. On the table. Visible to everyone. And yet I didn’t take one picture. But, trust me, Matt and Tricia were visiting in Ukraine and they not only had dinner at our house…but they also spent the night.
It was great to see this young couple. They moved from Kyiv to Virginia several years ago with their little Callie. Now they have a 2-year-old son, and are expecting again in May. They look great and I am so happy that we were able to nab them for a bit — we laughed as we remembered our times together here.
It is great to have belly-aching laughter in our flat. (And it has happened quite a bit over the last weeks.) Last night seemed so normal — almost like they had never left. Hopefully we’ll get time with them again before they return to the States early next week.
One week in-country is simply not enough.
Just for the record.
