I've been busy packing, unpacking and repacking because Emily is leaving for China tomorrow with her high school class. She's going to Beijing, Xian, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai. When I was in school, our class trips were here and here. And sometimes we went here.
She will be taking her Newsboy Cap with her and hopefully taking a picture of it when she visits the Great Wall. Honestly, that is the only thing I want her to bring home from this trip. Really, what's the point of being a world traveler if you don't take some handknits along for the ride?
You can depend on Lou Lou to remember every occasion with a card, and she made this one for Emily:
In case you no longer remember how to read First Grade, it says something along the lines of "I Will Miss You When You Go To China".
My sentiments exactly.
