A Day of Touring

We spent the day touring Tian an Men Square, The Forbidden City, and the Great Wall. Unfortunately blogger is not being cooperative tonight and I can't seem to get any pictures uploaded. Hopefully I'll be able to get them up tomorrow. We had a great day and made some new friends in our travel group whom I'm sure we will continue to stay in contact with from here on. All of us are adopting waiting children. There are three boys and one girl who will be meeting their new families in the next couple of days. We leave tomorrow morning at 5:45 for our flight to Nanjing!!! So I'm sorry to keep this so short, but we are exhausted! I promise to post more tomorrow

Hi! I remember the troubles we had uploading pictures, it was so frustrating... get some sleep (hope you are doing ok and adjusting somewhat to the time change?!) for your big day :) Looking forward to photos - but just glad to hear all is going well :)

Glad you had a good day and hope you get some sound rest. It is nice to hear you made some new friends. It's amazing the different paths you cross and attachments you make on this journey.

The kids got off well yesterday. As always they were so good that you would not even know they were in the house. They played Darby the Dragon and Reader Rabbit both of which Ella loved and Jason was happy to show her around the game.

Love you guys, Mom

Good Morning (or evening in your case)! Hopefully bloggin in province will be easier. We had a very interesting day traveling but we are here and ready to begin our California adventure. I wanted you to know I can get online. I'm thinking of your lots and I'll look forward to the photos of you both on the Great Wall on Valentine's Day!! Happy Day!
