The contract is signed

Woo hoo!! You cannot understand how relieved I am! This whole house process has been very stressful and this is a huge step to having it finished. Now we need to get the landlord's signature on the contract, which will come at the end of the week when he's back in the country. We've had some issues with the agency giving us the run-around so I'm hoping that this is the end of that and we can start fresh with them.

The move-in date is May 3rd. Thankfully, Der has a long weekend then so we'll be able to do a lot of the little things together before the big day. We're going to get a moving company to help us with the move. I've got two companies coming in this week to give us an estimate. Hopefully it won't be too much to have them pack and unpack our things - it will make life much, much easier. Once we get the estimates, then we have to get a letter from our current landlord saying we've left the place in good shape and everything has been paid. Then we head to the police to get a letter saying we can move and then we should be good to go. I will be very relieved once the whole process is over. Then it'll just be getting ready for Baby to come!

We went to the doctor today and all is good. I went for my glucose test on Saturday and the results came back normal - yay! It still looks like Baby will get here the beginning of July.

Monkey attack, Maid & hired help, Food, and Day 1 in the Books

Dhobi
The doorbell rang this morning and a very shy, humble young man in his 20s introduced himself as Vineet. Vineet is our dhobi.

Every Monday and Thursday morning, we leave our laundry outside our door. Vineet takes and washes, irons, and folds the laundry and returns it to us by the end of the day.

Kirsi, Aidan, and I are having him do our laundry. Dana is doing her own. This service costs us $70 CDN/month.

For all of the sweating that we're going to do here, we feel it's worth it.

Sujata
This afternoon, we met Sujata, who will be our maid. We had phoned her months ago while still living in Canada and arranged to hire her when we arrived in New Delhi.

She seems very nice and the family took to her immediately. She has worked for AES staff before so she knows the ins and outs of campus life.

Her main duties will be cooking and cleaning. She took cooking classes in Vietnamese, Thai, and Mediterranean cooking. She, of course, can cook Indian food as well. We gave her some rupe…

A Day of Firsts at an International School - Geckos, monkeys, and humidity oh my!

We arrived in New Delhi late last night to a warm welcome from the admin and support team from the American Embassy School New Delhi. It was nice meeting the people that were helping us get here in person. They've been very efficient and helpful in navigating the sea of paperwork of applications and visas.

Jet lag had me up at 4:00 in the morning and I immediately checked out the Hindi Devotional playlist on Google Music. I'm really digging the mellow, groove. Click on the link, turn up the music, and keep reading. Aidan is really digging the music, as well.

So far, it's been a day+ of firsts.

Kirsi and Aidan's first long international flight as independent children. They did a great job of navigating all of the steps involved in international travel and are pros now.Our new apartment is really nice - a video tour and pictures to come. Kirsi "loves our apartment, it's awesome."A gecko on the balcony at 1:30 in the morning sent the kids screaming to the sa…

Lodi Gardens & Kirsi's Soccer

Here is what our Saturday has looked like so far: Dana and Aidan Dana and Aidan went with the school group named HOPE at Lodi Gardens. There, they worked with the rest of the staff and students to offer activities to students from a local school. It's an amazing program.
Aidan said that it was "really awesome" to be able to work with the students and that Lodi Gardens was beautiful. 
Dana came away with some amazing photos.
