I guess this would be day 3 of our trip, since we left on Monday, so the day 3 report. We left on Monday at 3. Now if you have ever flown out of KC you know it is about the easiest and fastest airport ever. You don't have to arrive 2-3 hours early, an hour is sufficent, even when checking bags, because you go through security at your gate, not with every person flying at the airport that day. So we get on the plane, taxi, and seems like we are taxing forever, like I said, easiest airport ever to fly from. After about 25 minutes of waiting and taxing, the pilot come on and said that the 1 of the primary runways was shut down for repairs, and the other primary was shut down because a bird hit a plane in the engine, so the plane was on the runway broken down. So we were going to the alternate runways, 1 for landing, 1 for taking off. Lots of planes.
We arrive in Chicago, grab some dinner, and board for the long flight. They close the doors, and they say that we are leaving, but we never leave. Finally the pilot comes over and says that there is a problem with a bag and they are trying to fix it. An hour later we finally leave. Camden slept about 5 hours of the 8 hour flight. He did amazing. I, on the other hand didn't sleep a wink. I didn't want to take sleeping pills because I didn't want to be passed out if Camden needed anything. We arrive in Frankfurt, have to take a bus to the terminal, get through security again, and then off for our last flight. I tell you what, Lufthansa doesn't mess around. I took Camden to the bathroom before we took off, because he says it's too loud when the plane is flying. Well we were in the bathroom and the plane starts moving, not a pleasant experience with a little boy who has aiming problems anyway.
We get to Moscow, go through security, and we go get our bags, all three bags were there, and go find our driver. Then goes our 1+ hour drive to our apartment. I think our driver got lost a few times, he kept googling where we were. Camden passed out after about 5 minutes, which is a miracle, he NEVER sleeps in cars. We get to our apartment, Randy had to go get a phone, TP, and some water, we made contact with ur agency, and we are leaving at 11:30 am for our medicals, and then overnight train to Kirov. Luckly we get to leave a bag here at the apartment, because we have so much for Peanut, we thought it was crazy to drag it all there, bring it back, drag it back, etc.
We are getting rid of most of our gifts when we are in Kirov for court, so that will empty an entire suitcase! Can't wait to get rid of that stuff. So last night we went to bed at 11ish, and I woke up wide awake at 2:30, the sleeping pills were in the diaper bag in Camden's room, and I didn't want to risk waking him up, so I just tossed and turned for a while. Went back to sleep and woke at 7. The sun rises about 9:15 and is suppose to set at about 4:15. Short days! Well until tomorrow, have a great day!
The blessing of friends!
