all the kids
the whole travel group
We are still making progress with Jenna. Though it seems to be baby steps, at least I am seeing some progress. She is kind of moody though. Not sure if that's just normal for the transition or what, but she often goes to sleep one way and wakes up completely different. Today has been a challenge. She seems to have taken a step or two backwards this afternoon after we had a really great day yesterday. ??? At least I have the glimpses I do that let me know she will come around eventually.
Her TB test was negative, praise God. She did have a reaction at the site; it looks like a mosquito bite, but they measured it and apparently it was within the ok range, because she passed as a negative result.
The last couple days have been spent with the group doing touring and shopping. We visited the jade market and a huge wholesale market shopping area. Last night we had a whole group dinner at a Thai restaurant. Not my favorite, but the company was great. Today we were supposed to visit a botanical garden but the group voted against it because of the rain. Have I mentioned it has rained here every day? And not just a quick shower, but lingering, persistent rain. The good side of that is that while the humidity is ridiculous, it could be a whole lot hotter if not for the rain.
I am getting very anxious to go home. I enjoy it here, but I am ready for home. I miss my family and my bed and pillow. Although, it is pretty nice having someone come grab my laundry and bring it back clean, pressed and folded. worth every penny. ;)
And we've really enjoyed hanging out with a couple specific families a lot, I am just ready to get on with things and back to our crazy normal. Hotel living is definitely not normal.
Tomorrow is our last full day here!
We are leaving on the train for Hong Kong on Wednesday afternoon and spending the night at a hotel there before flying home on Thursday.
Thanks for following our journey.
