Here we go!!

We are in Detroit and are ready to leave. Only 15 more hrs to go (ugh) but its business class so it won't be that bad. Thanks Scott's company! Kids are having the last mcd's meal for a while. China has them, but they're not the same. Scott is trying to pull out Lauren's loose tooth. Really? Right now? Great timing.
Scotty already has travel plans on the 4th. But instead of it being for two weeks it's only two days. Really what could possibly go wrong being in a strange country not knowing the language. I'm sure we'll be fine.
Love to all

Here's most of our luggage.

I should have Lauren to stand next to it so you can see how big it is.

Our address in China is:
1983 Huamu Lu,House #157 (Season's Villa)
Pudong New District, Shanghai 201204, China
In Chinese that is:
上海市浦东新区花木路1983弄157号(四季雅苑), 邮编:201204

Last night in Kentucky

Well we're all packed up and are doing the last bit of cleaning. Everyone had a limit of 3 suitcases.  These are the 12 biggest suitcases you have ever seen in your entire lives.  They all look like they are about to pop.  If I say "there's room in there" I think Scott might bitch slap me into next week.   We are all set to leave at 5:30 am for the airport.  I've only felt like killing a family member 3 times today.  But all are still alive.  I do realize that we still have about 14hrs to go.
We are mostly excited, a little scared and sad.  But we can live anywhere (that's a city) for 2 yrs.  I'm sure we'll have great stories to tell people, but right now I'm too pooped to be witty.
