This blog started as a week-by-week look at our lives in 2010 (hence the address) in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Now, with the closing of my other blog, from-russia, I've decided to extend this blog to cover 2011 as well (despite the address--which really bugs me now that it's inaccurate).

2011, week eight

This box cracks me up.

Unbeknownst to me, Lexi put it in our Target shopping cart on one of our stock-up trips this summer.

Do you see that it is in Braille? Of course the Braille only says, "band aid". It doesn't mention that it's Hello, Kitty Band Aids. Can you imagine some blind executive showing up for work with one of these covering a shaving nick?

And the side tells you to seek professional help for medical emergencies. I guess Kitty isn't an MD.

2011, week six

On R 'n' R (Read and Relax) Day, we had a tent up in second grade. (This was a very overstimulating day for Lexi. Actually, all of February was with one special day after another.) AND it was the day that Lexi "got" to take Albert home for the week.

2011, week five

Lexi wants a car just like this one when she's old enough to drive.
