Wednesday's summary

Again, this is from Christy's mom:

"This morning after breakfast nine families that are traveling together met in the lobby for a group picture. Some of the families left today for Hong Kong, some of us leave tomorrow, and the others leave here on Friday.  We went to a nearby park after that, walked around, and rode some paddle boats.  It was very pretty, and also very hot!!!   We came back to the hotel and had lunch.  At 2:45 we left for the consulate's office to have the swearing in ceremony.  Now Lucy is officially a member of the Jaski family, thank God!!!!!   We went back to Shamian island to do some more shopping after that; Lucy was not happy with us.  As I told you before, she is not a shopper, but we had some gifts we needed to purchase.  We came back to the hotel around 7:00, had dinner in a Chinese restaurant.  Lucy was happy then.  Christy has taken Lauren and Lucy to the pool for a little while before we start to pack up some of our things.  We are thinking we will leave here for Hong Kong around 5:00 tomorrow evening, maybe earlier if the visas are ready.  It is a 3 1/2 hours drive, so we will be ready for bed when we get there.  We have a 9:15 flight on Friday morning, so we will have to get up very early to get the airport two hours before our flight.  Please pray that our flights will be on time and that we will have enough time at each airport to make our connections.  It has been a great and enjoyable trip, but we are ready to get back to the U.S.A.   Thanks, again, for your prayers."
