Home from China

Great Wall!  Elizabeth just fell so she is sad.

Hi Zuster!

I have spent the past 3 hours trying to create a Smilebox about China that I could send you and haven't been able to get it to work.  You will have to settle for more pictures.  We are all exhausted and not on schedule yet!  We are getting up in the middle of the night and trying to nap in the day.  We finally tried to bite the bullet today and your Dad fell asleep in church.  Hopefully we will be able to make our early wake-up calls for tomorrow!  Jake goes back to work, Rachel has an inservice, I am driving to Copper Mountain for TIE and Dad has to go into work.  Elizabeth will be home alone for the morning.  Here we go, back to the craziness!  

It was so nice of you to send Dad a card.  It came yesterday and I hid it and gave it to him this morning.  He was so glad to see it!  He had just made the comment that he was missing you.  We were so lucky to get such a great Dad in our family.  
Yangshou Mountains are so beautiful!

Now that China is over, I am going to concentrate on planning the Europe trip - of course after TIE, Primary Music and Public Affairs of course!  Why am I not thin?  

I am sending a Travel Smith dress and hoping that Lands End makes more skirts - they are having a big sale right now and only have size 2 and 4 available.  I will keep checking.  It looks like (from my phone app) that you guys haven't been very warm yet.  We are in the 80's but there have already been terrible fires over here.  Almost 500 homes burned down in CO Springs.  We flew into Denver and it looked like we were flying into Beijing.  So scary and sad for those families!  

Take Care!  Your blog now has more than 4,000 hits!  Crazy!
