We Have LUGGAGE!!!

I hate that I haven't been able to use my laptop. Tomorrow we fly to Wuhan so I hope I will be able to post pictures to catch up. We are also anxious to skype. Our luggage made it last night, and boy were we happy to see it!! It made a lot of things better- that and a good nights sleep. Yesterday we did some shopping and saw an acrobatics show. It really was fun and the boys enjoyed it. Today, we went to the Great Wall, the Jade factory and cloissone factory- we also rode past the Bird's Nest for Rion and Pressley to see. It was a full day and that's exactly what we need to keep our mind off of home! I think Rion and Pressley are really enjoying their trip so far- I hope it continues! Our guide, Steven has turned out to be much better than we thought at first. He is so funny! And thankfully knows how to take care of us! Yesterday morning was very hard- I pretty much lost it on the phone with poor Greg- It's so hard to be away from him during this time and combine that with all of the smells, the jet lag, no luggage. But I have made up my mind not to think about that and to try to soak in and appreciate my daughters birth country. I can't think of much else- we have eaten some great Chinese food and the boys enjoyed McDonalds as their first meal in China. I hope to send you pictures next time. Thank you all for your prayers.

Kim, you haven't said why you can't use your LapTop? I don't understand why. I traveled there for our first adoption in Dec 07 and will be in Wuhan hopefully in a couple months to get our son. Let me know what's going on with the computer. Todd

You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Think of it as a vacation with a purpose. Then, when you come home, you'll have almost the entire summer to enjoy ALL your family together! Rest well.
