Ta da....T-day...that is "travel" day.  Finished packing yesterday; got all the updated Guilin family photos that those families sent me of their children put into an album to give to the orphanage; gifts packed up; documents packed up...a little nerve-wracking when one spouse does not travel for the adoption (extra documents, extra notary forms, powers of attorney, etc.)

I haven't gotten a walk in once this week.  Hogan really needs to take ME for a walk...and I need that too; so he and I are heading out now.  Need to stretch those legs, breathe fresh farm air, take in the sight of the early morning mist rising off the ponds before I get couped up in a plane and airports for the next 22 hours!

I feel relaxed today after a week full of nerves.  Next post, from China! Xie Xie everyone!

Lily found out that Miss E is going to have a new sister and she thought it might be a good idea for me to go to China to bring her a new sister too.....
