Last Night in Shanghai

Tonight will be our last night in Shanghai, we leave for the airport
around lunch time and fly to Guangzhou. This will be Lauren's first
time in a plane, she has done well with all the driving and this will
be a good test before our ~12 hour flight home next week.

Today we went to the Yuyuan Garden and Shopping area, an older section
of Shanghai with original gardens and buildings having been built
around 400-years ago with some replaced in the 1860's. Lauren is
adapting well and she works hard to communicate and make us understand
her and she works hard to understand us; it is amazing how quickly she
is able to understand us and is picking up some English.

Here are some pictures from today, the one of Hannah and Lauren in the
room was taken by Hannah using the timer on her camera.  We did not even
know about this photo until we were downloading pictures from everyones
cameras tonight.


  1. Love the pictures with the girls having their arms around eachother. Blessings

  2. We love that too - especially knowing that Hannah took this without us being aware! Debbie - Thanks for all the prayers and keeping up with us.
