Well, no one is more surprised than me that I didn't post at all this summer. At all! I certainly had better intentions than that, but two months was just so so short for all we wanted to do. If I could have rebooked our return flights to give us more time I would have, but the cost was astronomical so we have powered through and done as much as we can. The good news is that we saw many awesome friends, a few of the children we had grown to love in China, got most of the shopping done that we needed (clothes, shoes, school books, program materials and brown sugar!) and had the opportunity to share about older orphans both formally at two churches and informally with many friends and family members. Not so good is that we missed seeing many people who we would have loved to spend time with, including many of our Eagles Wings kids. We also did not do the amount of support raising that we needed.

So without further ado...here is how we spent our 2 months in the USA!
