Day 462.......

or so it seems. The days are just flowing together in one big blob. We are just a little ready to come home and live in our house, not a hotel. Really our time has been very good here, just long. We hope not to repeat last night....Janie and I ate the same thing last night in the executive lounge and paid dearly for it. Thank goodness no one else has been sick. She got sick on the bus again this morning but has been good to go since then. Hank fixed up my headache by lunchtime and I have been good to go as well.

The best news of the day is Janie passed her TB test. We have heard a few horror stories where children have been positive and failed the chest xray as well and are not allowed to leave the country for 3-6 months. I cannot imagine....

We went back to Shamien Island and hung out for while. It is a gorgeous day and was so nice to be outside.....

after bath time....

not feeling well on the bus....the look we know so well


  1. When do yall head home????? We are missing our boys, we called them to check on them. Mia is coming into her own slowly but surely. We have lounged around since after paperwork and it has proved to be what she needed. We are so in love with this little girl.

  2. So sorry you were sick!!! What hotel are you all in? Scott has asked me several times~ Holiday Inn Shifu? Hope you and Janie sleep well and feel 100% better in the morning!!! That is NOT fun at all!!! Our girls have those same parasols and we have the little feather thing too. I know it seems like such a long trip~ blessings in the your last days of China!!! XOXO

  3. Oh no!! So sorry to hear about your sickness.....that was always my biggest fear on all of our trips! So thankful you are feeling better!

    I love seeing Janie and Madeline together! Precious!

    So ready to see pictures of the family at HOME!!! Safe travels! (and congrats on the TB test!)

  4. UGH! So sorry your girls got sick! Just a few more days, and you will be on that plane heading home!!!!!! LOVE the pants on the "Littles!"
    It's almost Tuesday!


  5. So sorry to hear that you and Janie were sick, but so glad that you are both better! I can't wait to see her and hold her (if she will let me). You are in my prayers every day. I know you are so anxious to get home and get Janie settled. The clothes are so cute the girls are dressed in! Love and blessings,

  6. Such precious little girls! Glad the weather got nice for you. It helps to be able to be outside. Blessings
