the long awaited visit





April's parents arrived late wednesday night after some flight delays in America. It is so great to have them here. The first couple of days were slow paced, staying mainly around where we live and taking the boys to soccer practice. Yesterday, we showed them a more well-known side of HK, Mong Kok. Perhaps one of THE most densely populated places on EARTH, it was an experience for them to say the least. And hey - we even picked up some additional pet fish for the boys an aquarium. I ordered lunch with the little Chinese I knew to speak... and it turned out to be quite good. After a busy afternoon, we came back to Shatin and relaxed in the park. We met our friends from Australia for dinner, mainly laughing at all of our language idiosyncrasies. Tonight, we are taking them to our church, Island ECC. The boys are having a great time making memories with Grandy and Grandad. We are too.

Matt, it was awesome seeing you on your last trip coming back to the states when you were on business here in Atlanta. I recently added your blog as one that I continually follow, and I also mentioned you in one my posts this past month on what blogs might be used for....in your case updating people on your family and inspiring other people. I enjoy reading your posts. So please keep us informed on how your life is going. There are those of us here who are constantly thinking of you and rapping for you.
