Sue, Peter and Jack accompanied Sophie to her kindergarten where she got to show off her school for a morning Parent's Day. She was thrilled to show everything she had learned and worked on to Mom and her Big Brothers.
Jack, watching Sophie's activities... He bought a new backpack recently and wears it everywhere!

Tonight, our friend Ashley came over from school and babysat the 3 kids. Sue and I went out ALONE to a foot massage, followed my noodles at this little shop below. It was great fun to watch our noodles being handmade. We ordered our meal, WITHOUT MSG, thank you very much.
Tomorrow we go to Yellow Mountain or "Huang Shan". We have tried desperately to get a hotel over the phone but to no avail - everything that is on the internet is booked, so we're going without reservations and HOPING we get a room! Yellow Mountain has 76 peaks and is to China what the Grand Canyon is to America - something not to be missed. The scenery will be beautiful and will hopefully overshadow any dismal accommodations we run across :).
We will be away from the computer until Sunday so the blog will not be updated for a couple of days - but stay tuned for a pictures and stories of what promises to be an "interesting" trip!
