On the move again!

Today felt like we got something done! We moved all our luggage to our new home. Many have checked out the photos of our new home on this sight http://www.flickr.com/photos/gillilandsinlithuania/
It was funny to hear some of the responses and the surprise that this country actually has something so nice to live in. It is hard to convince anyone who has not been here already that this is not a 3rd world country. I couldn't believe it myself before we got here a year ago and took a pre trip to see what we would need since we had such young children. Even in one year there has been so much progress. Last time we were here I said goodbye to my love for refried beans. When I went to the store today, there on the shelf were REFRIED BEANS. I shouted out loud for joy, in English of course, eliciting some strange looks. This is not a culture that shouts out loud for anything. Hopefully my beans will taste delicious! Before we moved here the first time I also wondered," will they have disposable diapers?" My goodness, they have huggies and pampers sure enough.
So we move into our house tomorrow. Sonshyne will celabrate her fifth birthday tomorrow with the Pastor's son who turns 5 three days before her. It will be a Princess/Pirate Party! What fun!
We may be out of touch for a few days as they get our internet started at our new house. All the unforseen glitches and everything you know! We are super excited to get going in our own home again.
If you have seen the photos,, you know there is plenty of room for you to come visit! No more excuses now! Just go for it!

How funny. If you run out of beans let us know and we'll send you a special package.
