On Our Way!

I'm typing this in the van on our way to Hong Kong. We had originally planned to take the train; I thought it would be faster and more fun for the girls. But it turned out to be a more difficult plan, involving luggage transfers and taxis, so we decided to take a "limo" (which in reality is a van. Driven by a crazy driver who has a tv show on and is talking on his cell phone, all while weaving in and out of traffic and cutting people off.). I hope you are all praying!!


We went to the zoo for a short time today; long enough to see the pandas

and feed the giraffes. After a nice lunch at Saba (notice Mollie's chopstick skills-she's eating rice!) with our friends from Houston, we packed up, received Mollie's Visa and Immigration paperwork, and hit the road. I think it's about 3 hours to Hong Kong.

We are all so excited about getting home and seeing our family and friends!

In Hong Kong now...we survived the van drive! It was definitely the scariest drive we've had, and everyone felt carsick, but we made it, and we passed through customs with no problems!
I definitely feel all the prayers; please keep them coming! I feel like we made progress with Mollie today, although I know that we still have a long way to go. But a couple of times today she almost had a fit, but we were able to calm her down and avoid it. She started pitching one tonight after her bath, same as always, when I tried to put her pajamas on her. But I was firm, and she quit quickly! We were all shocked and kept waiting for her to start up again, but she didn't! She crawled up into bed and settled in. It took her a long time to fall asleep, but I was so proud of her. Now I'm praying that she will control herself tomorrow! Please keep the prayers flowing all day tomorrow. We leave Hong Kong at 8:30pm Bham time Wednesday night, and arrive at 8:50pm Thursday night.
Blessings to all-
