A Blue Sky Day.....

These are rare indeed in China but today was beautiful....warm and sunny and a blue sky. Everyone was out walking and children were playing and just enjoying spring. We did some housework and walked over to the Lotus supermarket to replenish our supplies. The guy in charge of bananas wasn't happy with me because I upset his lovely pile. I really enjoy the supermarket. Found some baked beans today so I was happy. Love the food here and we were taken out to a farewell dinner by Pat and Cindy across the road at a local restaurant Brittany frequents. We could have had a turtle in a bowl but settled on shrimp.
The wonderful Brittany helped us arrange air travel and hotel to Chengdu to see the pandas next week and she is coming with us!!! We are so fortunate to have our own private tour guide and I am not sure I could not have done it without her. We put it back because we
want to be around next Wednesday when little Sarah at two will meet her forever family and go home to the US with them.
Today Isabel was taking photos of all the kids and I will send some from the past week.
Despite the sad events of yesterday we are moving forward. We appreciate all the prayers send on behalf of the tiny spark of life that was Patrick. Safe in the arms of Jesus now.
It is bath time at Starfish now and who can resist a toddler fresh from her bath all rosy and warm in their little sleepers coming to play before bedtime. So we are heading up.
I am so proud of Isabel and her entries on the blog. She has done a great job here and learned a lot and handled herself well.
The photos are of our Brit and baby Callum, Danielle, Benjamin (he will be #4 of a family of Asian boys soon) and the ever popular and darling
Cailean, who everyone is drawn to because of his sweet nature. His nanny is ex kindergarden teacher and very nice. It is so easy to love these children.
