We had a wonderful time here in Beijing and are headed to Hohhot this morning. Yesterday we toured one section of the Great Wall, drove by the 2008 Olympic venues, had delicious Chinese food for lunch and Mcdonald's for dinner:), and saw an amazing Chinese acrobatics show. We are making neat friends with other adoptive families along the way and getting great pictures with the best yet to come!

We are still crashing around 9 p.m. and waking at 4 or 5 a.m. As you can imagine, the excitement is building as TOMORROW we receive Mr. Henry into our lives forever. We can't wait to see Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, and then Guangzhou- firsts for both of us!

Our boys are doing great, getting to enjoy snow and lots of family time. We sense and see your prayers in big ways. Thank you so much! I'll post tonight how our first day in Hohhot goes! Blessings!
