We had another busy day with Josie. This morning we drove to a nearby, more rural village. The people were friendly and it was nice to get out of the city. Tonight we went out to eat at another Chinese restaurant and again I loved the food. Who knew eggplant would be our favorite thing! Josie loves all the veggies so far. She ate a lot of broccoli today and her favorite thing in the world seems to be watermelon. Lucky for us, they serve it frequently around here!
When we returned to the hotel, we went out in the hallway to play some soccer. Ben has tried this before but Josie just picks up the ball and gives it back to Ben. This time, she actually participated and giggled nonstop. You cannot believe how much joy can come from one soccer ball!!
After soccer, I gave her a bath. Right in the middle of the bath, the electricity went out for no reason. It was completely black in the bathroom and Josie didn't even seem scared. She stepped out of the bath like she knew exactly what to do. It was quite amazing. Luckily, the lights came back on about 5 minutes later. I guess that's common here although it hadn't happened while we were awake until now.
Tomorrow afternoon we go to Guangzhou. I am excited for something new. Plus, it means we're one step closer to home. We receive her passport tomorrow and then fly out tomorrow afternoon. We will be in Guangzhou for one week while we wait for Josie's visa.
Everything is going great other than Skype hasn't worked today. Please pray it will begin working again. It's great to see the boys and Josie really love it too!!!
