The week with my brother went by so quickly. We brought him to the bus stop on Saturday morning and swung right into getting ready for our next visitors (my sister and her baby boy!) and celebrating our dear Papa's birthday! Saturdays are hard days for priests to celebrate much, so we did a little on Saturday (presents and cards) and a little on Sunday (lunch and cake!).
These last few weeks before Pascha are going to be busy. The first weeks of Lent seem to go so slowly, but the second half always speeds right by... before we know it, it'll be Holy Saturday and we'll be ironing pretty dresses and decorating kulich (Russian Easter Bread)!
