Reading this brought back hilarious memories of your father singing Rihanna's "Umbrella" song while we were at the Iowa State Fair in the pouring rain last year. How awesome that your parents came to see you; there will be no visitors for me in Italy :( I keep getting bits of stories from Grant, who tells me that they had an amazing time. You and I will have to (finally) go shopping and swap stories when we are both home. Miss you!

Things have been good back here in the states. I've been working a lot... I'm trying to get the real estate thing up and running again. Its hard to make it on your own but I'm sure you know that better then me. I'm sure its tough sometimes to be alone but your have an experience that none of us have ever had. I hope the kids arnt giving you to much hell. I was an ED major, so if you need any advice feel free to ask. Cya Z

You found me.
I'm not too bad. I have good and bad days. The holidays were a bit rough. I have never spent a Christmas by myself. How is life back home. I haven't heard anything from you in almost 5 months.

Enjoy your Blogs
We really enjoy the stories of your China adventure(s). You have a real talent for bringing us to China with you. That college major is showing. I'm sorry you weren't here for the Christmas Season. But think your folks missed you even more. I'm so pleased they are going to spend almost a month with you. It will be a great trip for them in addition to spending time with you. Wish we could all take turns coming to see you. We tell our friends about your Blogs. In fact, we print everything and have all of them in a three-ring binder. Know we love you, Clare, and include you in our prayers. Love, Grampa and Marilyn.

what a cool description, of what I am sure was a delightful, spiritual and more than memorabel experience. Wow, clare. I was almost there with you when reading it. Thank you for sharing your cave experience with me. I love the fact that you are delving into the culture in ways.... today, your wonderful mom came to the DTS and taught charlie's class to make books. she showed them the III book that her group did and one of the students asked which one she did. She showed the page with the pink lace, and blue jeans and spoke about writing about her children who are no longer living with her because they are grown. It made me pause and reflect on your life when you were young, and so innocent, filled with excitement to see how the Easter bunny put the eggs in the front of grandmas and grandpas house. And then, I smiled inside myself, knowing how much you are enjoying your experince in China. On Monday, we are going to make paper. ok... off to bed now. i see that you skyped me. i hope to hook up with you soon. much love your way. annie

Cat tips
HI, Just in case, make sure give enough FRESH water to the cat, and changed it one time per day if possible. Better only feed the cat Cat's food. In case, play as much as possible with her, it's important. Enjoy! Xin

fish and such
hi, clare. nice pictures and descriptions on your recent blog. Thanks for sharing, clare. i think the fish therapy would do me in. wow. interesting notion. pretty fall weather here. we finally got our home painted!!! it is now brown. the kids had fun at Halloween. weather was cold, but this year (actually, and last year) we did not have to go out with the kids which is nice. made gumbo, and home made chicken noodle soup for a few friends, and had them over. well, emma is babysitting up the street tonight. I am going to go to bed early, and read, as I am rather tired. perahps we shall see you on skype again soon. we love you, clare, and are so glad you are having fun. keep making safe choices in the things you do. we are so proud of you. take care love, aunt annie

Your description of the swim in the sea, took me back to my youth.... (YIKES, aren I still young?). ... Keep on skyping and writing! it wasa delight having you at grandmas birthday party! She was very joyful about the entire eve, I know. Because of family, she is, as are we all richly blessed. Be careful, know you are deeply loved by many, and have FUN and LAUGH MUCH. aunt annie

I'm available most mornings...that's evenings for you. I could skype Thursday morning at about 8...That would be Wednesday evening at 7 in the states. I haven't heard from many people back home. So far, I've just been getting emails from Kelly, and I've skyped with my parents and my aunt Annie. It would be great to see you and hear about your 21st!!

Since when have you ever tired of testosterone? Last spring you were whining about the amount of estrogen at your house. There is no pleasing some people!
