"China doesn't really match our family."

Eden (6) said those exact words during FHE. David was talking about the very UNlikely possibility of needing to move to China briefly for this job he has starting in April. 

He was in the process of explaining how we could make it work--rent 3 apartments right next to each other, since we're not likely to find a 5 bedroom home in a country that allows 1 child per couple. Adding to our weirdness--7 girls.

That's when Eden piped in with, "China doesn't really match our family." 

She has a point. Still, if we possibly can go, we will. And, I've already prepared everyone that if it happens, they will NOT be going to American schools. I'll drop them into a regular Chinese classroom, and pray hard for the gift of tongues. 

Just a thought.

Wow. We need to talk! I want to hear the whole story.

What about your built in translator, Daisy?

Hip Hip for the job. When did this possibility happen? Weren't we just together? Diane is right - Daisy is just your girl!

That would be something else. My parents loved it and didn't want to come home.
