So the night is only getting started, but we finished decorating the Tannebaum and cooking for the New Years Feast. All there is to do right now is wait until Babyshka and Dedyshka (grandparents) to come! Earlier today, sister, friends and I went ice skating in an open air rink. It was so much harder to skate there than at an indoors rink, but I think my ice skating skills are getting better now! Practice really helps. I feel more confident about skating since my friend Meike told me to just think of it as in-line skating. It feels good helping around the house today, and getting things done early. In a few days, Moscow camp will begin, so that’s also something wonderful to look forward to!
