We Are in Beijing !

We just got to our room in Beijing and we are really tired ! Our three flights were uneventful but we really could not sleep more than about two hours on the plane.  Everyone here has been so nice and Rosa ( our guide) met us at the airport .It was wonderful seeing that AWAA sign she was holding !  So, we are going to try to get some sleep now.  Tomorrow morning we will eat breakfast at the hotel and do some sight seeing without our guide.  I think we will try to go to the Temple of Heaven, The Pearl Market, a Chinese acrobat show and grab some dinner somewhere.  All the other families will arrive here Friday and our official tour starts Sat. morning.
It sure feels good to know that we are so close to Maggie and it won't be long now.
Oh - all Chuck's gadgets are working - The Magic jack, G mail video chat, and g mail of course.  We already had a video chat with the boys and it made me so happy to see their faces ! I miss them a lot already.
Merry Christmas !
