We just returned from China Camp, one of our favorite places to be! We had a wonderful time, as always. We saw old friends, made new ones, celebrated China, and relished being in a place where our family looks like everyone else's.
China Camp always starts with the sound of drums and the magic of the lion dance.
Katherine and her buddy Sophie spent a lot of time together. They have been friends since they were in the same baby room in the orphanage together.
And the kids... I will never, ever tire of gazing at all of those beautiful faces. Watching them perform (or not) makes me laugh and cry, sometimes both at once!
Before the program started, a little slide show ran on screens over the stage. There were perhaps 20 pictures and Rachel was featured in no less than 3 of them! I wasn't sure if I should be proud, because she really is adorable, or embarrassed, because her camera ham qualities are a bit excessive!
Rachel's class sang a song in Chinese. It must have been about a horse, because they were all riding hobby horses made out of pool noodles.
