Lilymei Day and Missoula Children's Theatre

We have just received confirmation that we will pick up Lilymei one day earlier than we thought!!! We are flying into Hohhot around noon on Sunday, July 27th and we will meet Lilymei later that afternoon! We were wondering if our travel itinerary was correct and this morning we awoke to an email from our travel coordinator, who received word from Beijing, that we will have Lilymei with us Sunday night. Oh my goodness! Less than 3 weeks away! Scott is home from work today, trying to get ahead on some of his MBA coursework so he won't have to worry about it while we are gone.

The boys are busy this week with the Missoula Children's Theatre. This is Nate's 3rd year participating in Missoula. The first summer we were on Guam Nate was cast as a farmer in Jack and the Beanstalk. Drew did not want to participate that year. Last year Nate was the lead character of Rumpelstiltskin. Drew was a gnome. It was a great show. This year the crew will perform Robin Hood. Nate has been cast as the Sheriff of Nottingham while Drew is one of the guards. (He really just wants to have a sword!) Rehearsal runs from today through Friday, with the performance Saturday morning. What a great organization this is. I hope the next base we move to also has this program available to the kids. It is amazing what 2 traveling professionals can teach the kids in such a short amount of time.

I can't believe it is only 3 weeks away! How are you holding out? We will be leaving in 11 days, I am still not ready. I have Olso's suitcases packed now.

Just three weeks ~ it'll go by like the blink of an eye.

And the Missoula Children's Theater brought back fun memories for FG. I think that's when we first met, wasn't it? I was the overly chatty mom ;)
