{G} has been gone a week! We put her on a plane (for her first airplane ride, EVER) in Dallas while we were on vacation. An incredibly lovely Southern couple – thank you, whomever you are! – helped {G} navigate her first international flight and she made it through communist customs without a problem. She’s had a week of intense culture shock and a crash course in learning her relative insignificance in the world. All incredibly valuable things to learn as a sixteen year old.

She brought along Dr. Fuzzles, a small teddy bear that she, {I}, and {K} all loved as a baby. Dr. Fuzzles is in charge of experiencing China for {G}’s 17 year old cousin Afton, who is fighting stage 4 Ewings Sarcoma bone cancer. We love you Afton! As you can see, Dr. Fuzzles is having an incredible time.

Every morning we’re on pins and needles to see what new adventures {G} and Dr. Fuzzles are having.
