We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Holy Heck...I Have a Kindergartener!!!

i can't believe nick is already a kindergartener!  it's crazy to think he's been with us just 3 short years...kinda makes it feel like he should technically only be 3 years old.  he's definitely come a looong way from that scared little guy that took his first car ride outside baby home number 1! he has a lot more confidence and has overcome a lot of his shyness, altho he still does become a little unnerved in unfamiliar circumstances.
nicky was very excited as we walked him to school the first day.  he was all smiles, and chattered the whole way; asking a million questions about what kindergarten would be like.  the closer we got tho, the more anxious he became.  as we crossed the street and walked up to the front of school, his grip on my hand tightened and the questions about when he could come home started.  he told me "i just wanna to stay home wif you momma!"  so sweet! :)
 we found his locker and helped him hang up his backpack and put his lunchbox in the right spot.  we walked into the class and met his teacher, and as he saw the other kids in his class all reading a book, he delightfully joined them.  he was excited to see that a little girl that lives across the street from us was in his class!
 once he was settled, he barely even paid any attention to us!  it was as if he was thinking "adios parents...this is my world & you gotta go!"
i picked him up at the "walker door" after school and he came bounding out full of exuberance.  he told me all about how fun his first day was, and that he couldn't wait to go back the next day the whole way home, and all thru snack once we got home.  then...he fell fast asleep!  i guess kindergarten is hard work!
