We arrived in Guangzhou!!!!

After many attempts to post to the blog I will try one last time, if it doesn't post then my daughter in law will post for me:) We spent the last 5-6 days in Zhengzhou with the boys, getting to know each other. We had a great time with several families visiting the Shaoling Temple. Adam especially liked it. He screamed with delight at the top of his lungs when we went to the Kung Fu show! It was so funny. They asked for volunteers to come to try our Kung fu in front of the stage and Adam jumped right up but when he got to the stage they said no kids....he was so sad:( But we all still enjoyed the show. It was a beautiful, sunny day.

We arrived in Guangzhou yesterday. The boys had their physical exams and shots this morning. Neither appreciated it (neither would I for that matter). Then we ate and went swimming. Not a good combination. Adam threw up and Titus got leg cramps. They are both fine now, inside playing DS games.

The weather here is really humid and hot, not something us Washingtonians appreciate:) BUT the sun is nice:)
The next few days are the Dragon boat festival so we won't be doing any paperwork, which is a shame, we are ready to come home. I love it here, but miss the other kids and my own home.

There is a 12 yr old boy in our group that came with his parents to adopt a little sister. His name is Will. We thought that was funny since our 2008 adoption group had an 11 yr old boy named Will too. Too bad both Wills aren't here at the same time. Caleb would love that:)

The pictures are of the boys at the Shaolin temple with Will, then sleepy boys after a long day and baby crying filled flight. The last photo are the two boys waiting for their physicals. Good thing we brought the DS's!!

Well back to getting cleaned up from the swimming pool and off to eat Thai food with our whole group. We love and miss you all!

PS...I would really love to add a little girl to our family..time to start praying:)

[I have been trying to upload the pictures...it's not working for me right now...I'll post them as soon as I can. -tiffiny]
