We're in Beijing

We just arrived in Beijing safely, very exhausted and a bit on sensory overload. We're looking forward to relaxing and exploring tomorrow. It's suppose to snow this week, but hopefully it won't prevent us from our tours on Monday. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. We're thrilled to be here...and thrilled to get some sleep tonight!

I am so glad you made it safely. It's snowing in Alabama right now, pretty heavily and we are praying that we can leave in the morning on our way to meet up with all you guys! We should see you Monday afternoon!

Just a quick FYI (you might want to put a clock with the current China time so we'll know what time it is for you folks).

We've been thinking about you all day and hoping you made it there dafely and without too much stress. It's very cold here in Nashville but no snow since you left. We bought an elliptical machine today and had to drive home with the back door of the Pilot open. BRRR!
We'll be checking your blog and look forward to hearing any and all updates.
Miss you already!
