Being Begins in Beijing

Ok, not really, but when you're as tired as we are, those words all look alike anyway...

We are here, safe in Beijing. The only casualty so far has been Sydney's little backpack, which was empty, and I'll be calling United tomorrow to see if we can get that back somehow...

It's 8pm here. We're fed, we're clean, and we're tired. Sydney is asleep already, and we won't be far behind. We're praying that we can sleep through the night (since we've only slept about 3 hours since waking up at 4:15 am in Dallas yesterday), but jet-lag is a funny thing.

The one news-worthy piece of information (other than the fact that we are safe) is that we will not be seeing Kate on Easter Sunday. For some reason that changed and we will now not get her until Monday the 13th.

We have a few pictures of our chuckle-worthy dinner, straight off the shelves of the "Food Market" (which took us an agonizing 20 minutes to locate in a building not big enough to warrant that long a search), but that will have to wait until we are rested.

Over and out...

Thanks for updating the blog, Rollin. I'm so glad to know you are safe. I will pray for Sydney's backpack to be returned. Sorry you have to wait another day to receive Kate...however, hopefully that extra day will be used by God to give you and Amy another day of rest. I know that being rested was Amy's prayer. Love y'all.
