Medical Exam Day

I wanted to beging by giving you a glimpse of that 200 dollar meal. The boys are eating shrimp and please note - the flowers on the table are orchids. Jed and Simon were totally unimpressed that the room was moving. I guess when you figure that moving into a 5 star hotel with strange looking 'big nosed' people , who make you bathe and change your clothes regularly and buy you things every time you step out the door and offer you more food at one sitting than you have ever seen before, a spinning room must just be a normal thing in this new strange world.

Today we went to Shamian Island for the medical exams. We are
traveling now with another family we know from online - the Thompsons ( from PA. They have adopted two precious 5 and 6 year old girls who are bothe doing great. Faith hasn't had much time to keep up her blog, but I am pretty sure her girls don't spend as much time occupied with movies as my boys do. At the moment Jed is watching
Tranformers and Simon is watching Mickey Mouse. The medical exams went fine, Simon had to have 4 shots , because he is over 10, and he didn't even flinch. We go backin two days to have their TB tests read. Failing that would be the only thing that could keep us from all returning home on time. We know of two families who had to leave their kids here for a couple of
months while they completed the treament for TB. Not fun. I'll check their arms tomorrow and hope to see nothing.

It is FAreezing here! The latitude is the same as the Florida Keys, and I can pretty much guarantee that nobody there will be wearing down jackets there, as we did here today, any time this winter. There is obviously something about the temperature realtive to the equator that I don't understand. Any help out there??

I'm not sure exactly how cold it is but my Fla Keys friends have been pretty cold the last couple of days. We lived there for 12 years and got cold but never wore down jackets ;0. Love reading about your adventures! God bless, Janet
PS I'm sure you have much more pressing things on your mind but do you know if Wen has anything planned for CNY. You may not have recovered from the trip by then :0)

Don't bet on that down coat comment! We've had down comforters on our beds the last 3 nights. It has been in the 30's here which is darn near FRIGID for us in Florida!

I'm so glad to see the boys doing so well. Maybe someday we'll get up to the NC Mountains and meet them. You know I have a special place in my heart for Jed.
