Summertime review

We left China on June 13 for two whole months in the US.  It was a long trip, but mostly uneventful (the way we like it).  We arrived in Memphis near midnight and spent the night at a nearby hotel.  The next day Jon's parents, nephew,  and niece picked us up.  We have so much luggage (5 people)  that they borrow the church van to haul all of us back to Henderson.  Hallie took most of these pictures.

Home sweet home (for a little while)

Jack's is one of our favorite places to eat.  We also enjoyed Mexican food, BBQ, and Taco Bell (and other places)
Nothing beats a real biscuit

and sweet tea!!!  We also drank a bunch of Dr Pepper.  I really enjoyed the ice too! We ate a lot of ice this summer.

The kids enjoyed playing outside (no school).

 We worked on teaching all the kids to ride  bikes.  They are not ready to ride on the road in China, but they can all balance and stay up.

 Both of the girls got their hair cut (for Locks of Love)

Hallie went to MSYC and made some new friends.

We spent time with old friends.

We got to spend two whole weeks in Hixson and our Clear Creek family (love these girls).

Someone had a birthday and we celebrated at Chuck E. Cheese.

We enjoyed spending time with family and friends this summer, we were sorry to see the summer end, but we were anxious to get back to our life in China and our work here.  We hope to see you again next summer.
