rice and travel

Liam had rice last night? And guess what? He liked it! He also slept through the night that very night, which was a pleasant experience for the whole family. He's growing up so fast. Jenny mentioned how he's been growing like a weed lately. He's quickly filling out his clothes and moving on to bigger and better things. He's been practicing sitting up as well and he's been laughing and smiling lots.

We have a big week coming up! If you refer to our site, you'll notice the countdown timer to China is down to just under FIVE days! We are shocked that time has flown by this fast, but we are also excited to move into our own apartment and get reacquainted with everything "familiar" to us in China. I actually had a dream about it last night. It was quite nice. :)

For those of you who are still foggy on the itinerary, here goes: We are departing from Minnesota at around 12:40pm. We arrive in Tokyo at 7:30pm (Tokyo time) and depart three hours later for Beijing. We'll arrive in Beijing at 11:05pm (Beijing time) and then we'll be spending the night there. The following morning, we depart at 10:30am and arrive in Xi'an at 12:30pm! We are really excited about all this. Hopefully two days of travel is better than one in this case and that spending the night is a nice adjustment for us. Please be thinking of us during this time!

We'll post again soon from Xi'an, China!

Until next time,
Jeremy, Jenny, Levi, & Liam
