Plane tickets are bought...Yangzhou here we come!!
I purchased James and Kennedy's plane tickets last Thursday. They leave on March 12th and come home on the 22nd. They head to Beijing for a couple of days, than leave for Nanjing(capital of Jiangsu province) and than take a bus from there to Yangzhou. I still can't beleive they will actually be going. It will be such an incredible trip for Kennedy. We are in contact with some other families who are attending the 20th year celebration as well. Kennedy and James will be meeting up with them in Beijing. There are a few girls who are close to Kennedy's age as well so how wonderful will that be to make some friends who are her age and originally from Yangzhou. Now they are living all over the US and some from the UK.
We are working on getting their Chinese Visa's and I will be bringing them to the travel agent today. Once that is complete, we need to wire the money for the in China travel and then all that is left to do is pack and get on the plane.
Again thank you to everyone who made this incredible trip possible for Kennedy. She is excited and nervous but can't wait to get going.
