Please pray for safe travel for our daughters as they stay with family and safe travel for us as we make the numerous flights throughout China and back home. Please lift up Jack to help him cope with what is about to happen to him.
See you in China!
Dan ADDS: Well as one may have predicted, I cannot sleep - so I thought I would add to this post. We are ready to head out on this new adventure. Michele has added a bit of drama to begin the trip. Monday evening, she knocked a table, which sent a mini-speaker crashing onto her 2nd toe on her right foot. It has swelled a great deal, though the pain is not so bad. Last evening she was hobbling a bit - thus, is quite prepared to dash through the airport, climb the Great Wall and tour the Forbidden City. In an attempt to ease her pain, I sprang for 1st class upgrades on the Atl to DC leg of the journey. For those who know me - and the long tradition of, shall we say, "thriftiness" of the men in my family, this is quite a big deal for me :-).
Thanks to everyone for the great support, kind words and heartfelt prayers. China 2.0 here we come!
Lane and Jenna, we will miss you and be thinking of you the entire trip.
