We're Home!

After flying for 3 hours, stopping in Tokyo, then getting on another plane for 10 more hours... with lots of crying, eating Asian food in little compartmentalized dishes, feeling total exhaustion with stiff necks and legs...we are finally home. That was a looooooooong flight. Our little Asian princess didn't like being confined on mama's lap for so long, but who could blame her? It must've not been too bad because people all around us were sleeping through all the noise.

It's incredible how tired one feels after that kind of journey. We left Guangzhou at 8:30 am on Wednesday and arrived in Los Angeles at 9:00am. We all came home and hit the sack for a nap. After waking up after 3 hours, I had to take nap number 2 a little later. I couldn't keep my eyes open. Now it's 3:00 am and I'm wide awake. This jet lag is going to take some time I guess.

Sophie finally went to sleep in her own crib and I can do the same. We'll have pictures maybe tomorrow. Thanks for all of your calls, emails, and comments. They carried us through the last 2 weeks knowing that we were covered in prayer. Good night!
