Meet the family

Within our family we have a variety of last names, pretty funny I think, the reason behind the last names is not as important as knowing that we are a solid unit. We are a family, a blended family at that. We ALL lack communication skills, but, we know that we are there for each other when we need to be. We have only 1, yes only 1 photo of the whole family that was taken in 2009. Can you believe this? Since we don’t see each other very often, when we do see each other, we are so anxious to share with each other and just be together that we forget about the pictures. Does the picture matter? To me it does, to them, not so sure…

 

Intro blog post…

A bloom

Bloom

Hello family & friends,

How time flies when your having fun! I’ts hard to believe that we have been here for 3 months. This China journey that we are on is one heck of an adventure. Not to mention it is a humbling experience. I’ve decided to start this blog since we have family and friends that refuse to get involved in a social media site. I can’t say that I blame them, it’s so easy to get caught up in the drama of others even when we have no intention of doing so. I hope this blog lends the opportunity to have discussions that we would not have otherwise.

We are loving life right now and have adapted well to the environment & culture (well somewhat). We’ve been challenged and have to make due with certain daily functions such as preparing meals. But, were doing it, it’s amazing how creative we can become when we have and need to.

More to come….
