Whoah! I'm just catching up again. I skip a few days and there you go, breaking news again!
I got chills reading your most recent entries. I can only imagine how thrilled y'all are to get on that plane, already.

I hope you are able to keep up with your blog while you are in China, and especially with pictures. You must indulge us!
