My Adventure to China

10 days? wwhhaatt?!

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

So in my last blog post I mentioned how crazy things have gotten...well things have gotten even more crazy over the past couple of weeks(if that's even possible). Whenever I am in a store (or within a 10 mile radius of one) the first thing that pops into my mind is what I can buy for China from that said store. Shoes? Shirts? I always feel like I'm forgetting something. The other day I put my suitcase in my room and now it seems as if it's the largest object in there. The whole packing process is kind of overwhelming. Today me and Melissa made some sweet bracelets for the kids that we're going to be visiting! She had to teach me how to make them, because believe it or not I lack the craft gene. I'll admit it didnt come out flawless, but you can tell its a bracelet! I can't wait to give them to the kids! 10 more days! CHINA CHINA CHINA!

First Blog: EXCITED!

Throughout the past couple of weeks things have gotten quite crazy! From meeting, planning and everything in between! Our Verona group has gotten together several times to discuss and sort out our plans. Now that we're in the final stretch (ONE MONTH LEFT!) it's really sunk in that we're travleing to China, on the adventure of a lifetime! I can only imagine how incredible this trip is going to be. We're truly lucky to have gotten an opportunity like this one. China here we come!
