I can't believe that TODAY is the day we start our journey to China...and to our daughter! I've been waiting for this day to arrive for what seems like FOREVER, but for some reason I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that IT'S actually here!
We don't fly out until 4ish this afternoon, so I have some time this morning to finish packing and to put a few last minute details together.
For the most part though, we are definitely READY!
By far, the hardest part of this day is going to be saying "goodbye" to my kids. I'm trying my best to keep it together, but up until this point I've been a BIG ole' puddle of emotion. I know once I say goodbye and get my rear on that plane I'll be fine, but until then...well let's just say it ain't pretty. Please pray for me today! I need to be strong and confident...for them! I am leaving them in THE BEST HANDS EVER! My family will be staying here and they are going to have a total BLAST! These next two weeks are FULL of fun and busyness, and because of that I know the time is going to FLY! They probably won't even notice I'm gone;)
I, on the other hand, am going to miss them like CRAZY!
So here's just a quick run down of how our trip will begin...
We leave Charlotte @ 4:30 today and fly to Detroit.
Then @ 9:55pm tonight we leave Detroit and fly into Beijing.
We arrive in Beijing @ 11:55pm on June 22nd;)
Hopefully, I'll be able to post once we get to China...
so until then...
(I better be on my way)
