Yesterday we drove out to Grand Rapids for her family party, today is really her birthday and she'll have friends over to celebrate.
Alex is now officially my travel partner when I go to China. After much discussion, thought and prayer, Alex will go and Bill and Acer will stay and wait.
We told her by giving her a purse and slipping a note in it that said "Pack this and your luggage, you're going to China!" She couldn't believe it, she looked at her Grandma and said, really, really?' and then she finally believed it.
I pray we have a good trip, it'll just be all us girls, Calliandra, Alexandra, and me - Look out China, you won't know what hit you!.
