"I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you."
I heard from our 'far-away' family today. I was expecting an email but not a phone call, in fact, I almost didn't answer the phone! It was so good to hear his voice, but it made me cry. They are doing fine and meeting co-workers. They had shipped toys early so the kids would have them when they arrived, but the toys didn't get there yet. Co-workers are loaning them toys and other things they need until everything gets there. Two of the kids are sleeping well, but my "Dumpling" is having a little trouble with the time difference. I'm sure once all of her things get there she will feel better. Hopefully in 2 weeks they will have their internet and phone ready to go and we can Skype.
These are pictures from the middle of September when the moving van was there. We were on the deck eating lunch and the kids needed to see where all of their things were going. Seeing the playroom packed up was a little traumatic for my "Dumpling".
