Every zebra on earth has a unique pattern of stripes that no other zebra has.

Hu Yun Chang arrives home

Yes, my bearded Chinese warrior is home! He had a great time and is currently suffering from a huge case of jet-lag.

Check you this video of Paul singing with his guide, Darrin, at teh closing ceremonies:

"Close to You", originally by The Carpenters

This is pretty classic!

I scream, you scream....

This weekend we went to Jack's Cosmic Dogs for dinner and soft serve ice cream. Grandmomma and Poppa had sent each of the kids $5 to get something they wanted and we opted for ice cream. I was so proud of KK because she took her money her money and went right up to the icream counter to order her own ice cream! Such a big girl!

My beautiful girl

This is what happens when kids don't have Dads

Paul had been in China for 10 days and Matthew has already turned into a gangster! Just kidding! His babysitter, Justin, got him to do this and it totally cracks me up. Actually,  Paul's absence has made Matt like a little baby duckling, following me around and calling for me the minute I leave his sight. It might be annoying if that boy weren't so darn adorable.

Paul seems to be really enjoying his time in China and enjoying interacting with the students. He has whipped them at ping pong and been given his Chinese name, Hu Yan Chang, ancient bearded hero.

The week of Matt

Matt has had a good week. He saw his first movie in the movie theater (Mr. Popper's Penguins). After having his membership in the underwear club temporarily revoked, we took a small step forward this week with a pee-pee on the potty at home (I think he was as surprised as we were). And, after getting desparately overdue, he got this dapper haircut today.
