A few China pics

Did I mention that the family trip to China was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience?  We prayed SO hard and everything fell into place beautifully.  Not one thing went wrong!  We had a couple of flight delays but the guides were always waiting when we arrived and it was no big deal.  Josiah caught a stomach bug but it didn't show up until we were back in Tokyo and even then it was very mild.  Praise God!!  We made some great memories, and a lot of unique experiences that I hope to share more about in the coming weeks.  Abby got to get a little taste of her homeland, and we all got to see some things we will remember for a lifetime!

Josiah talked everyone's ears off the whole time, and is right now reading over my shoulder with a very weird expression on his face trying to figure out what in the world that means.  Our travel group was very, very patient with him and answered the same questions over, and over, and over!!  By the way, he can read faster than I can type and if someone has some hints on homeschooling gifted children please do let me know!

Anyhow, here's a little peek into our trip....

    I'm so glad to see that you guys did make it to China. I remember that was something you were hoping to do before you moved to Japan. What wonderful family memories... thank you for sharing! :)

  2. One Word: Jealous. One question: You guys PCS'ing back stateside anytime soon? One statement: We simply must meet for a cup of coffee.
