We have a date for court!! Unfortunately the courts in Ust seem quite busy at the moment so the earliest date they could give us is the 18th February. The first date we could have had court would have been the 12th so its a bit later than we had hoped for but as long as it goes well we don't mind.
Leah was a bit grouchy today, her mouth has been giving her a lot of bother recently and she spent most of the time with us today trying to get everything into her mouth for a good old chew! She still managed to smile everytime she saw the doll though.
We have come to the conclusion that Victor is an ex-tank driver who still thinks he is in his tank! The places he takes his little grey mini-bus is quite unbelievable, we thought he had managed to get it completely beached on a snow bank but he still managed to come out the other side with all four wheels more or less on the ground!!
Also in 'red coat news' I'm sorry to report that its still pretty warm out here (by Kazakhstan standards) so don't expect to see a reappearance anytime soon!
Keep praying, especially with court looming, we fully expect to get paranoid and crazy in the run-up to our court appearance!
Philip, Amanda & Leah
