BIG News!

Our big news (this just takes my breath away!) is that the sidewalk project has received a grant...

for .......

drumroll please.......


Can you believe it?!

So we are more than half-way to our goal.

And we are making a small change. Instead of "Chrissy's Garden", we are going to title the giving page "Walkway for Wistow" as the new walkway/rollway will benefit everyone in the house, not just our sweet Chrissy.

Thank you to everyone who is making this dream come true!!

Do airplane klicks count?

I know, we disappeared for a while!

Since last we posted, we have found out we are being transferred. We are going to Houston after just over 1 year in Beijing. We are sad to leave but excited to go! It has been a little crazy trying to get everything coordinated. Add the holidays in there and it has been a whirlwind of activity! Unfortunately, very little of that activity has been forward moving klicks. But we have managed to earn a few...

They were earned walking, sledding, skating, running, biking... we had fun!

And if airplane kilometers translated into klicks for us, let's see... 3 girls and myself from Beijing to DFW, to Detroit, to DFW, back to Beijing and soon, back to DFW. The Dad flew Beijing to Toronto, TO to Houston and then to Beijing. I think we would have earned some major klicks!
