Before returning to Kazakhstan, we were busy painting and decorating the kids' rooms.  Thought you might like to see how they turned out. 

Jonathan's room.

A few things left to hang but otherwise complete.

Rachael's room got a re-do as well.  She chose her colors and painted the polka dots.

Pretty cool pad.

Rachael being a bit theatrical in her new Kaz traditional garb.(photo taken at 4:00 a.m. the night of our arrival.)

She looks more like the Swiss Miss girl than a little Kazak girl if you asked me.
