New interest: Working on Boy Scout merit badges with my 14 year old. I am having more fun working on the badges with Kirill than when I earned these same badges. It looks like Kirill will make Eagle Scout while he is 14!!! He now has 36 merit badges and his Eagle Scout project is finished! We are very proud of him!

Olga and I met online in September 2008. Our first meeting in Moscow was in April 2009. The weather was a bit chilly; but our relations were warm. :) In June 2009, I spent a week in Moscow with Olga and her son. We discussed marriage during this visit.
In January, I filed the I-129F with the Vermont service center. Due to the winter snow storms, Vermont is a little backed up. We were expecting NOA2 results sometime around April 9th, but it seems that April 24 - May 10 is more realistic.
All paperwork and documentation for the K1 & K2 visas are ready to go! So, now we patiently wait...
