We're all doing fine. Our journey over here was an experience. From the time we got on the plane in Louisville, until the time we landed in Shanghai, it was a 26 hour trip! We spent 2 1/2 hours in the Louisville airport waiting for the storm to die down enough for us to take off. Then we arrived in Chicago, thinking we'd missed our flight to Shanghai, only to find out it had been delayed 8 1/2 for mechanical reasons! By the time we finally landed and got to our apartment, it was after 1 pm Louisville time on the 5th, and we were at the airport at 6:30 am Louisville time on the 4th! All in all though the kids did great. Sarah was having a hard time the first couple of hours on the Shanghai flight, but then she finally fell asleep, and by the time she woke up, we were only about 2 hours away, and she was in a MUCH better mood!
