Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Bear





We went to school today. We visited a 4th grade English class. Kendell worked on teaching them Fuzzy Wuzzy - The students showed us their zoo - They have an ostrich, peacock, monkey, goat, pigeons, other assorted birds, fruit trees and other assorted garden items. All of these are on the roof of the school - so as you can see Chinese schools are just like ours. The school was so loud I don't know how anyone learned anything - It reminded me of recess all day long. The kids were very nice and we had a great visit. We went to the park and shopping (of course). We went out for Thai one last time this evening - We are now packed and ready to go - Tomorrow we go to the Safari Park - then have the oath taking at the American consulate (that is what we have been here in Guangzhou waiting for). We then take a train to Hong Kong - which is a 2 hour train ride - We stay at a hotel and take a 12:45 pm flight home on Thursday to Chicago and then home - We arrive at our home airport at 8 pm on Thursday night. That is all for now.

Hey, it's Belena Brantley. I didn't know you had a blog, but a little birdie at school told me. Congratulations :) Benjamin is a very handsome boy. I am LAUGHING because I would be going crazy if I had taken Aislynn to China. They say two is terrible, but three is way worse in my opinion. I would take two back anyday--oh wait, the twins turn two tomorrow. I will be getting them back x2, or maybe squared. Anyway, we're sending you safe, sane travel wishes.

Hi Clarkstons! Someone from your church told me about your trip and blog. Congratulations on little Benjamin! We hope to meet him when you all get settled....which might be never, but we'd still like to meet him :)

Hope you are home safe and sound and didn't have a flight canceled by American Airlines :)

Enjoyed your blog too - what a hoot. If you ever decide that health care is not your thing...you'd have a career in PR! HA.

Congrats again - Heather Peugh (and Greg, Emma, Abbie and Addie)
