In the above photo, Levi Nazar had just awakened from his nap after we arrived. Iliana on the left, and Maria on the right, are two of the caregivers in his groupa. We could barely communicate with them, but we think they wanted to know if we had voted for Obama or McCain and how we felt about the elections. Before waking up Nazar, we had a chance to show them the photo album we brought from home. They were very interested and asked many questions through passing our Russian book back and forth and all of us acting things out.
After getting Levi Nazar dressed, they sat him at a table for us to spend time with him. This is the room where the children eat their meals.
We took the time to get our first "official" family portrait.
Finally, we'll end this post with a photo from yesterday, when Levi Nazar enjoyed his first piggy-back ride with his new dad.
