A week from today we are boarding a plane to live in China for a couple months. There are a million things I should be doing, but they feel a little pointless until a few days before we leave. For instance packing…can’t really do that until the weekend arrives. We can’t pack up our clothes, we kind of need those. I also need to deep clean my house…also pointless because we are living here. I do have on my ‘to do’ list to write a blog post this week with more details about what we will be doing in China and why we are going.
Until then…lets take a moment to appreciate this ridiculously cute 5 year old in her great grandma’s hat and her sister’s ‘fashion’ glasses…
“I know,” she said as I grabbed my camera.
Now, let’s take a moment to appreciate the wonderful world of pre-teen and teenage boys. I was inside working on my computer (hint, hint…big giveaway week happening on the ole’ blog next week!) when I heard laughter coming from outside the window.
Their current obsession is the iMovie app…so many movies being made at my house now. These boys are so much fun. They are endlessly funny and creative. They surprise me every day with their randomness and genius wit. When my kids were younger I would often laugh AT them (not in a bad way, but in a ‘toddlers do the funniest things’ way). This age I still laugh AT them, but I also get to laugh WITH them. I can’t wait to explore China with them!
