More soon, but you may notice that the FTJ has a spiffy new look, and that's because there's a big trip on the horizon! All four of us, plus my parents (now in their early 70's) are going to CHINA after school lets out for the summer! We are working through Lotus Travel, which coordinated our adoption trips in 2002 and 2004, and the airfare (gulp) is already booked. Good thing JieJie and MeiMei love to fly, because on the way over we have a Dulles-Tokyo leg (14 hours) followed by a Tokyo-Guangzhou leg (5 hours) on All Nippon Airlines. On the way back, it's Beijing-Tokyo (3.5 hours), overnight in Tokyo, then Tokyo-Dulles (12 hours on the way back, gotta love the jet stream). We have been looking forward to this trip for a long time and are so excited to have grandparents along. We'll be part of a larger tour group too. Hoping there are other kids around our girls' age--we know from our adoption trips that friendships forged in China are special bonds forever.
And yes, we will visit Fuling and Liangping.
As I said, more later -- gotta get back to work because that bill ain't gonna pay itself!
