Last night in GZ. We have a 4 AM wake up call and still have a little packing to do. Our route home is GZ to Tokyo and then Tokyo to Portland. We'll take off here Wednesday morning and land in Portland early Wednesday morning. Best trip ever, but we're ready to get back.
Fantastic day...Audrey turned a big corner today. She spent practically the entire day in great spirits. Heard her laugh a lot and we had hardly any of the mourning cries that we have been hearing. She even played some with me (John) so we're making some progress there.
Quick rewind...yesterday (Monday) was pretty light which was good because it was Janie's turn to get a quick stomach bug. She lost it, with it being breakfast in a store late morning yesterday. After a nap and a movie in the room she was totally fine. The rest of the day was shopping and hanging out at the park. We then had a big group dinner with all the families from our agency. I think there were eleven families. Nothing too crazy at dinner, just a little pigeon.
Janie woke up today at 5 AM so the two of us went walking until breakfast at seven. There were tons of people, or all ages, out exercising. Today was a combo of a museum, the Six Banyan Temple, the park, shopping, the outdoor market, and dinner with some friends from the group. Plus, the most important part, the swearing in ceremony at the US Consulate Office. Here we received Audrey's passport and visa. There were 52 families going through the ceremony that day. Audrey will become a US citizen when we touch down in Portland.
That's about it. We'll catch this up once we catch up at home. Thanks for following along.
