 All Packed!!

It's after midnight and we have just finished packing. We are supposed
to get up in 4 hours so now I wonder if I should even go to sleep. I had
to work a lot of the day which did not help the packing effort. There is
an itineary section now on the web site with the full run down. We
should be touching down in Beijing at 12:45 am CST on Wednesday, 1:45 pm
there. We will get Mikayla on Sunday afternoon, about the time most
people are going to bed Saturday night. That day is also Mid-Autumn
Festival day, sort of the Chinese Thanksgiving. What a day to give
thanks for!! It should be pretty neat; besides eating "mooncakes" and
watching the full moon, everyone puts these red laterns outside to light
the evenings festivities. We will leave Jiangxi, the only place Mikayla
has ever known, on her first birthday. That's all for now, next message
from the other side of the world, Lord willing.

I will be praying for you through your trip. Hang on Mikayla, Mommy and Daddy are on their way. I can hear that little song in the background right now..."I'm leavin' on a jet plane"...God speed to you both.
