While I was in China....

The kids look like they grew an inch a piece and they have turned into little brown people, they are so tan (and I know they use 30 SPF sunscreen).

Brian tested for and received his Blue Belt. And to think that he was just an Orange a year ago.

Erica is playing Bach's Minuet 1 very nicely on her violin - she has definately been practicing.

Many of the garden plants have been decimated by Japanese Beetles, those cursed things!

My tomato plants are doing fine, even having been neglected for 2.5 weeks.

The water lilies in the pond are doing great - the lily pads cover about half of the pond and they are blooming like crazy. The new koi are getting bigger.

There is this huge weed growing out of an abandoned pot in the front. It is taller than me, but Scott doesn't want to get rid of it because he thinks it is "cool".

Finally, gas prices haven't done anything except go up. How depressing..........

Wow Shirley!
What an experience! I just noticed your post on SS and followed the trail to your blog. One of my "do before I die" things is to visit the Great Wall. Someday we'd like to take our kids back to the country their grandparents came from (my inlaws are from Guangzhou)

I'll be back to read more when I have more time...

Hi Martha!
I know that I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to go on this trip. It has been very enlightening to me.
I would love to come back with my kids as well so they can learn more about their roots.
