our new house

When I first got in the house, I thought it looked much bigger than our old house… till I walked through it. The rooms are tiny, half of the house is stairs, and the master bedroom is not even the size of my old bedroom. The house is really nice, nicer than it looked in the pictures. I love it. It’s fun to play in it. There is a frog stuck in our backyard. He can’t get out because of our fence. I myself haven’t seen him yet but Ava and Henry told me about it.

And so it begins…

The flight was hellish! I only got four hours of sleep, I almost spilled soup everywhere, and when I woke up at what was 1:00 AM in Baltimore, I felt sick. It feels like my jet lag is gone and I can’t wait to see the new house. I want to unpack all of my stuff and see it again. I have a lot of plans. I want to: collect Chinese opera masks and hang them on my wall, make new friends, skype my old friends to get their emails, pick out my cell phone, BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH ect. ect. The hotel is nice, I enjoyed the miso soup and tofu. I plan to learn to use chopsticks. I hope I have fun!


We just arrived in Shanghai.  The flight was really long but I enjoyed it.  I couldn’t sleep.  At least I got to sleep 5 hours out of the 14 hours.  The funny part is that Henry said, “There are servants!”  We were in business class– it was very enjoyable!  That’s why Henry said that.  I am scared and I don’t know what is coming next.  I was pretty much crying through the entire flight.

We are staying in a really nice hotel.  The funny part is mom and dad got two rooms.  Actually, that isn’t really very funny.  I was awake all last night because of jet lag and Henry.  I was very, very sad and I still don’t know what is coming next.  You can never know what to expect when you move somewhere.
