2nd one is Brian and the kids. It makes it so much more relxing for me with him here!
3rd one is at the Safari Park. It was so cool! The animals come right up to your car.
Gotta go to the playground now. Everyone is tugging on me. :-)

Update From Bridget

Meeting William

With the orphanage director

Boy, is Will keeping me on my toes! He never stops! :-) He is so incredibly smart too! Wow. He knows quite a few songs in English. Old MacDonald had a Farm, Where is Thumbkin, Jesus Loves Me (he sang himself to sleep with that 2 nights ago), The Wheels on the Bus. The kids take a long play bath every night and we all sing the songs he knows. 

Libby has been very needy as well. I'm pretty exhausted. 

Tomorrow we go to Guangzhou. I am not looking forward to another flight. But at least my hubby will be there.

Oh yes, and he sings the ABC's with sign language! PHF really is impressive!

Today in the swimming pool, a man came up to us and pulled out Williams diaper to see if he was a boy or girl! Heehee, I do just love these people! :-) We took a long walk today, down our street. We were looking for the Walmart, but never found it. Lots and lots to look at. Lots of guns being sold :0, as well as wallets and jewelry, and eggs boiled in tea on cloth laid down on the sidewalks. People stop and stare at us. :-) They literally walk right in front of us and turn to stare right at our faces. lol, it's actually very sweet. I feels very safe, except for the cars driving down the sidewalks and such!

Our 1st Hitch

We have hit the first, and hopefully the last (yeah, I'm sure!) hitch in our travel plans. We head out to the airport tomorrow morning around 4am and the weather just said that the fog will be so dense from tonight at 6pm, until tomorrow at 6 pm, and there will be many plane delays. So my darling husband has been scrambling around finding us a way to O'Hare in case of a cancellation. He is my hero.

Two Days....

......until we leave! I just can't stand it! We are pretty well packed. I got my computer all set to be able to Skype back home. We will meet my little honey on Saturday! Man!
I'm hoping things go well here at home. I'm trying to plan out meals, make sure Josh remembers his Tues/Thurs. allergy shots, and that they remember to feed the dogs, and put them out periodically, and get school accomplished, and get to work on time, and clean up along the way- have the house looking nice to welcome us home (a girl can dream, can't she??)

Hopefully I can post while I am in China.
