Today was mostly preparations for tomorrow--the Big Flight Home. We leave our hotel at o-dark-thirty to head to the airport in Guangzhou. We fly to Beijing, then have a 5-hour layover, then straight to Seattle. Total travel time from takeoff in Guangzhou to landing in Seattle is around 20 hours, but after we land we get to go home to our own house, with our own rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and animals that we miss tremendously. The second flight begins at 5PM China time, so we are hoping that after takeoff, a busy day, and some dinner L just may fall asleep. That's a lot to ask, but here's hoping!
So we are pretty well-packed, other than nightclothes and toiletries, and our suitcases are weighed and zipped up. We went back the store today to purchase extra toys and snacks so L just maybe can handle such a long flight. He's also gotten sort of interested in some of the apps we have on our Kindle, so maybe that will help for a minute at a time or so.
We also have his Chinese passport in hand, US visa inside, and a packet of information that we cannot open, but will hand customs in the US as we enter the country. This will make L a US citizen.
So this is it! Come on, USofA!!!
