We swam in three different pools, met friends (day-old friends that is) to play at an indoor play place and have a picnic lunch, had pizza delivered to a pool with friends (now 2 day-old friends) and swam 'til dark, ate a home (finally), played on the playground, date night, movies and the girls and I got our toes painted. Just all around nice.
Of course there were some adventures along the way. Laughing at the three men that came to deliver our hide-a-bed and them telling me in Chinese that it was too big to put in the elevator (2 guys came later to carry it up 27 flights of stairs and slightly disassembled), interviewing and hiring an Ayi (household helper), getting large jugs of water delivered to the apartment (and learning to buy vouchers for more), shopping, introducing our driver to this year's VBS music and trying to learn how to text him using Skype and Google translate.
This week's to do list includes...surviving our first typhoon.
|LBean and I practicing our cannon balls. |
Please no comments on why my splash is bigger than hers!
|Our fishy faces|
|Our first piece of mail in China, our address worked! Thanks Kim!|
|We got our toes done at Lotus, LBean's were free|
since I got my toes done too. If you look closely
you can see a small white butterfly on her big toe.
|This is the life!|
|My toes, with a flower and leaves painted on the big toe.|
I can hear my mom's voice right now, "They look great, but
the color looks like you have a toe fungus." Green seemed
fun and it reminded me of Chinese jade. (Love you mom!)
