Coming Home

We're leaving tomorrow for home. Scott and I were talking yesterday about how we miss everyone and the comforts of home, but we've started to get used to living here already. These are some pictures of the neighborhood down the street from us. Its called Spring City. I think you can buy anything there. Its amazing how quickly we've been able to adapt and grow to enjoy and tolerate the odditites of this city. I am excited though for cooler weather (the temperature today is 84 degrees with 80% humidity!).

Scott misses football - he watched about 8 of last Sunday's games through Chinese sports highlights. We don't have cable or satalite TV yet, so we've been watching the one English station and the Chinese kids TV for the last two weeks. Last night Timmy and I watched Dora the Explorer in Chinese while they teach you basic English words (instead of the English version where they teach you basic Spanish). Its pretty interesting.

I think Timmy misses his grandmas and Sarah and all his toys. I can tell he is sick of being with just mama all day. He has definately made a new friend with Scott's co-worker Chun Lei. He squeals with delight when she is around. His favorite new treat is anything through a straw - see picture.
