Today, we have had a little bit of a communication snafoo when it comes to signing the word "eat". Chaning translates it as brush teeth. I've had to stop her from brushing her teeth at least 3 times today.

Past time for bed. The shirt says it all.

Anyone want me to bring them back some of these??

This was the English speaking salesperson for my camera buying escapade and it was very limited English at best.

Today, Joan and Mom took the boys to the huge Asian waterpark right outside the city. One flume was 10 stories tall! I chose to skip out on the infamous zoo trip and stay in the room and await my "all clear" at the Consulate call from Simon. (Miko is our other guide) Simon and Miko delivered my nice big x-ray to our room this afternoon. This x-ray has to stay straight, not be bended and will be given to the CDC who will be awaiting my arrival into Detroit Saturday. They will then sign off on Chaning entering the country and then will follow up with us???

Chaning and I ventured out all the way to the 2nd floor today for lunch at a market. We then decided to go to the playroom here in the business center. That was short lived. After much persuasion, Chaning and I took a very long nap.

'Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.' Isaiah 40:31. Boy, did God lay the right verse on Amy's heart for this day. Yesterday just about did me in but today was wonderful.

The attached pictures were taken this evening after I took a little stroll over to the Friendship Store/5th Floor/Camera section. I love you, Tim. Mommy had to have a camera. I have driven everyone crazy in the last hour taking pictures. Just wait till tomorrow!!;0)

Tomorrow, we will meet as a group around 10 a.m. and travel to a toy/super market. No, this is not the one we went to 4 years ago, travel group or else I would be skipping it. Not sure what to expect at this one but love a mystery. Tomorrow afternoon, Chaning and I will go to the US Consulate and have the swearing in ceremony. Thursday, she will receive her passport and visa and then Friday, we start heading home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, even if there's a miscommunication, at least she's obedient! I'd be like, "Hey! I've already brushed about 10 times today!"

No, I'm so not pregnant! We are madly paperchasing for a little boy (he just turned 3) from Yunnan. CCAA has given us a deadline of October 23rd to get all our paperwork logged in. That's only 90 days and it's going to be close! But I think it will happen. He looks like a little firecracker of a boy. Maya will have her hands full.
