Friday May 4th

I'm waiting for my husband to finish showering so we can facetime (the Mac equivalent of skype) with the kids.  I thought about starting without him and realized that just might be a bit awkward.

We all found the hard beds not hard to sleep in at all, though Huckleberry stated he had to think a little more when turning over.  Huckleberry slept 8:15-5:00 a.m. and Oak and I woke up for a little bit around 2:30 a.m. but were able to get back to sleep until about 6:00 a.m.  That is more sleep than I've had in any one night in the last four months, so I think we should be good to go.  Our acrobatic show isn't until 5:00 p.m. so our guide thinks if we want to go over to the Summer Palace on our own and meet them at the theater there is time after our orientation.  We'll see if we are feeling adventurous or just want a nap.

So far Huckleberry has been a real trouper.  He has NEVER stayed up until 3:30 a.m. before...not even past midnight before.  But he kept going...a little slow, but with willingness and patience.  We are glad he came.  On the plane played his DS, watched a few movies, and ate all his food.  Now he is writing his journal entry for yesterday for his humanities homework.  (His teachers all gave him reasonable and interesting assignments to make up for him missing 2 1/2 weeks of school.  Everyone was very excited for this opportunity for him...except for maybe Robotics since he'll miss the competition next week.)

Well, off to try and connect with my babies at home, breakfast in the breakfast buffet, a trip to the grocery, our adoption orientation...and then we'll see from there.  Hope you have a great day!
