In order to get to Dasha, I take bus 24 to the bus depot and then I get on bus 19. After 5 stops, I exit the bus, usually hitting my head on an overhead bar or the doorway, and then I walk about a half mile to the orphanage. Today, she was already outside with her groupa. She and I were allowed to go to a nearby playground, where the nannies could see me, and we got to swing and play. I brought her some animal crackers and she drank most of my water. She enjoys sitting on my lap and looking at books and she LOVES to swing. Big hint for someone to get on Scott to build a small swingset before we get home.
When I hold her, she wraps her arms around my neck and presses her cheek into mine. She was so happy to see me and I was thrilled to be with her.
