Well, we volunteered to have some Russian ILP students stay with us for a couple weeks while touring the Utah/California area. We were going to have 6, but one cancelled. We have a mother [Ira] and her 16 yr old son [Alex] and three 11 yr old boys [Serg, Ilya, and Konstantine who goes by Kostya]. They have been a handful, but a lot of fun. Shortly after their arrival they showered us with gifts from Russia- we have a lot of work to do to find them equally meaningful gifts from the U.S. to take home! They even brought a few toys and books for Serra. They seem to be very excited to be here- and we hope that we can all have a lot of fun together. They will be here until the 26th when they leave to tour California and Vegas and return on the 3rd of July to stay until the 10th when they fly back home to St. Petersburg, Russia.
