One week from today....

This picture is from the last update we got at the end of December. I love this picture. Xiao Jun is in the front middle with the black jacket on. Some of the kids are now home with their families, others still waiting. Right now we are exacly one week away from leaving for China! This time next week we will be on our way! We'll spend 2 days in Beijing, then go meet XJ in Hefei where we will be for I think 4 days then it is back to GZ to complete the paperwork on the American side of things. We are spending a night in San Francisco before we fly out. This should help make the flight seem somewhat shorter...I hope! We have 2 other families in our travel group and they are both adopting "older" children. They also both have children already that are joining them on the trip to China. It will be good to be with families that have kids since we don't know what we are doing! We are very excited to meet everyone and get this show on the road! I'm tired of waiting and I don't have much to do right now since I am not working. I hung shelves in XJ's room yesterday and cleaned it so that is done. We have one suitcase packed with things we won't need until after we have XJ with us. Saturday we are packing the other suitcase and our carry-ons, Sunday we are doing a major house cleaning, Monday the doggies are going on their "vacation". I'm really going to miss my dogs...I've been taking them each on special outings before we go. Annie got a big run on Town Lake yesterday and an extra walk. Basil went swimming and playing fetch off-leash on Monday, Butternut joined me for coffee and a breakfast taco and an off-lease excursion where I took some great pictures of her in the Bluebonnets that are all in bloom here in TX. They have no idea what is about to happen, as much as I try to explain it to them ;)
