Golf Tournament Gary Player The Woodlands for Ethan and Austin


Two days after we got home from China the boys golf tournaments started. I missed sweet Corbin's because Mama and Teagan were wore out from the jet lag, and I had just fallen back asleep about the time we needed to be up to head to the golf tournament. He placed 2nd place at Pecan Hills in Navasota. I was so proud of my sweet boy. His brothers and daddy were there to cheer him on.

The next day we headed to Ethan and Austin's golf tournament in The Woodlands at the Gary Player Course. This was the older two's first tourney and the competition at this and it is harder. You have kids hitting in the 70's (which is Amazing!!!) at this age. 

Our boys love golf because we can do it as a family and if they win a tournament than that is a bonus to the joy of playing. I sure do love watching them play on the course. I was proud of my boys for doing their best in this Texas heat. :)

Guangzhou Days


We had medical exam early Saturday morning, he was all smiles until they took him away from us for his blood draw. Daddy got all choked up handing him off, while Teagan was screaming reaching for him. We ate some yummy Chinese food for lunch later that day.

Sunday Chen Academy which this was our third time going there, but when in China. :) after we took a taxi over to Shamian Island.

Monday was a free day so we swam and kept it low key, Tuesday was Consulate appointment, Wednesday was Safari Park and today we went to a mountain and took a Gondola up the mountain and hiked down, then headed to the medicinal market to look at all the strange things. LOL

We are back at hotel packing then we are going to have a pizza party with a few families at the hotel playground. 

Tomorrow we leave for home early. We can't wait to see our other kiddos. Please be praying for safe travels and a happy boy.

Leaving Xian



It is always very bittersweet leaving our child's province. My mama heart is always full of so many emotions. Xian is absolutely beautiful and we had so much fun exploring here. 

For our last day we had lunch with our guide Sherry at a very local noodle shop, and then we walked across the street to the barber shop to have Teagan's hair cut like a little Chinese Hipster.

He was so good


He loved it!!!!!!

More Xian Days


                        We have been sight seeing all over Xian and surrounding areas. We went to the Terracotta Warriors. These warriors were found by some farmers digging a well. They have repaired many of the warriors that were destroyed by a jealous general. These warriors were meant for the emperor's after life, so he would have a great army. Each one has a different face.

                         Next Day was a free day so we took Teagan to Ocean World Aquarium and then to Tang Paradise (Which is a beautiful park from the Tang Dynasty). We pretty much have been exploring all over Xian by a lot of walking and Taxi. It has been a fun adventure for sure!!!!!

                          Another fun thing happened yesterday morning when we were at breakfast. A mom of 13 kiddos with some adopted came to talk to us about Teagan. We talked for about 45 minutes and we met some of her crew that were in China. She said they were here for business. I asked what they did and it was Trim Healthy Mama!!!!! I had sat and spoke with Serene Allison and didn't even know it. Then I met Pearl and Evangeline. They are the sweetest and most down to earth mama's. It was a treat for sure to meet them and in Xian China of all places.

                             Tomorrow we fly to Guangzhou the third largest city in China for Teagan's medical exam and consulate appointment. We will be there for six days and fly home on the seventh day. Please continue to pray for safe travels and health and for our kiddos back home. Teagan has a cold so we actually started him on an antibiotic yesterday.
