Today is the day!!

Yesterday we went to a church service, the jade market and the Great Wall. We ended the evening with an acrobat show. The Great Wall has been my favorite sight so far. Climbing it is hard yet amazing. It was a somewhat cool day temperature wise with a nice breeze which helped. Some of the steps are just inches apart, while others can be well over a foot high. They are worn, uneven and tricky in parts. We made it to Tower 6, I believe. My legs could definitely feel it and it would be fun to take an entire afternoon to see how far you could go. It is amazing. I promised Eli I would try and bring home piece of the wall and I was able to find some mortar (what is put between the two stones-not sure of the right term) for him. Not sure of I was supposed to do that, but I snuck the piece in my pocket to show the kids!!

My luggage is packed and was picked up at 10 o'clock last night. I have to be up in less than an hour and I cannot sleep. We take a three hour flight to Marlo's province and I will meet her in the afternoon. So sometime when you all back home are sleeping, I will become a mommy again and get to hold the newest little Benson!

(All my pics from yesterday are on the camera and I haven't downloaded any to post here. Here are a couple random pics from the weekend. Next post will be of Marlo!
