We got an omen at a going away dinner with friends.
Dinner with the Reed's was great as usual, but just to be clear the tab was for 1776rmb not 1776usd, but a sign nonetheless that we're coming home:)
We said goodbye to Li Xiu Lan, friends and mommy:(
We packed up the dogs - as come-ups go, they are living right. From hutong dogs to world travelers.
Meemaw and Pop-pop met us at the airport in my new rig:)
I checked in with the new job at Rock Ridge and got the hard-hat tour of the fields and athletics facilities.
We saw Alec and Jesse and Aunt Kathy at Reston Town Center.
On the drive up to Meemaw and Pop-Pops we had to reacquaint Bennett with the American corn field, hay bales, cattle farms, Gettysburg and the American Civil War, and of course, the road-side ice cream stand.
Fireworks tonight, a baseball-watching weekend in New England tomorrow, and praying momma gets home to join us soon.
God Bless America! What a special time to be home.
