Home Sweet Home

We are home and everyone, except Bruce, is wide awake.  We pulled in about 3:00 am and it's now 8:43 am.  I'm so tired that I'm dizzy.  Kate is on the computer and Melissa is playing with AnNi's toys.  Welcome to the world of the toddler.
We look forward to getting settled and moving along into a routine.

One More Night

Tonight is the last night we will spend in China.  I love this country but, I can't wait to go home.  I miss my kids and my big one is home for only a few more days.  Can't wait to see him too. 
Today was our consulate appointment.  The paperwork has been processed and we will pick up the visa's tomorrow.  It has been very stormy today so we haven't been able to do a lot.  ChooChoo is taking a nap and Xiaochun has spent the day on the computer.  She is in for a rude awakening when we get home and the computer time is monitored.  We still have more shopping to do when the weather clears.  That is always fun in China!!!
See you in America!!!!!

Almost Done

Well only 2 days left!!!  Today we went to the pearl market and bookstore.  I have never seen so many pearls in my life.  Xiaochun bought a couple CD's for her birthday and a book.  Yesterday she picked up a jade cross necklace.  She can shop!  We got the results of their physicals today and Xialchun needs glasses and Qinqiu has a very enlarged spleen.  We did expect this.  It is due to over two years of blood transfusions without the use of celation.  It can be reversed but this will take time.  Otherwise they are healthy and TB free.
We went to Lucy's for dinner and remembered that we really never liked it.  Dinner last night was much better!!!  Tomorrow we head to the consulate for our interviews and then we are home free.
