Bye Bye Peter Pan Can
The nanny threw it away so I guess no one won.
From a first time blogger, thoughts about life from an American missionary now living in the US after years in Russia and doing a lot of back and forth. Family stuff, Christian content, sports innuendo and lots of quotes from good books.
First, there was the tragedy of Brian Nichols.
Peanut Butter, that is. Being back here in Russia is bringing back some old and funny habits. For instance, neither I nor my wife dares to throw away the Peter Pan Peanut Butter jar here. We brought one big jar with us. We've nipped on it to the point that very, very little remains. It's funny though that neither of us will throw the jar away. It's like neither of us wants to be one to toss it when "there was another full snack in there" or something.
Well, we're back in Novosibirsk for the summer. Walking into our apartment on Monday morning with my family was an answered prayer. Leaving last August was necessary and a decision none of us regret. Having a whole summer to be here again with our whole family is necessary and is also a decision none of us regret. In a sense, we left home on Saturday in Atlanta. In another sense, we got home on Monday morning when we walked back into this apartment. In yet another sense, we are still not sure where home will be. I can't figure it out really. It's just that way.
Stupid people in large groups."
