We ended our night, last night, by skyping in on Clay's pre-school graduation! It was so much fun to watch him sing with his friends, and get his new big boy Bible! The program started at midnight here in China, so I had a cup of coffee to help keep me awake, and we watched it all in our pj's.
|What a precious little boy, he is! We are so proud of him!|
|This was our skype-view of the program.|
|Davis was having a good time showing off with his GiGi on skype.|
This morning, our travel group took a trip to the Guangzhou Botanical Gardens. It is definitely not your typical US botanical gardens experience. There were tons of sculptures, and everything was crazy colorful! It was really cool...however, it was NOT literally cool. We thought we were going to die! I promise you, it was a million degrees outside, and the humidity must have been somewhere around 300%!!! We lasted maybe an hour before we had to seek air conditioning. So glad we were able to experience it, though!
After such a hot and exhausting morning, we decided to stay in our hotel room for the remainder of the afternoon. We had naps, played and enjoyed some fun time together.
|Daddy and Eliana working on flash cards. She is picking up on English so fast!|
|Eliana LOVES to color! |
Clay & Davis, your sister LOVES the princess coloring book you sent her!
|We read some Bible stories together.|
|Eliana had her toenails painted for the first time, after her bath tonight.|
So many of you have been praying for us and the situation with the US Consulate, and we thank you! Please continue to pray. We still have no idea when we will get to come home. The latest news that we received today is that the US Consulate is going to be closed for the remainder of this week. It looks like we will be celebrating Eliana's 2nd birthday here in China after all.
