Yesterday Kai had to have his required medical check up. It was a vastly different experience from three years ago, when we were packed like sardines down different hallways and had no idea what was happening. The new medical facility was clean and efficient. We met a number of other adoptive families while we were waiting. It was an altogether painless experience (minus Kai’s first blood draw. Ouch!)Yesterday afternoon we went to Shamian Island, where we loved spending time during our last trip. It was a bitter sweet visit. Many of the shop owners that we loved are no longer on the island, due to lack of business. We still had fun wandering around the gorgeous little town.
On the island the boys were movie stars, once again. This is NOT their favorite thing about China, but it makes us laugh! 🙂
