Ni Haw

Kati, Mira, Me, Emily, and Kristen at the spa.  Kathy is behind the camera.  Sweet, sweet reunion!!  XOXO
Four of our twelve bags are packed.  Brave has an appointment at the doctor in a few minutes to make sure his whooping cough (pertussis) is gone.  Our arms are a bit tan and our pants are a bit tight, and we are ready to head back across the world to our real life.  

Brave epitomized our two-culture way of life perfectly yesterday when he galloped through the house on his stick horse, a red felt cowboy hat on his head, hollering, "Ni haw," a combination of "Ni Hao" and "Yee Haw."  

It's true, our kids don't know which way is up, or where they are going to sleep next, but they know they are loved and they know, without a doubt, that G0D is the only constant in life, and the reason we are alive at all.

East Asia, here we come!
