Final Farewell . . . . .

We are official, we took our oath and as soon as we land in LA, Mia is an American citizen!

Today Mike, Mia and I went shopping and walking around. Our appointment at the US Consulate went smooth and we had to raise our right hand and take an oath. We also had our farewell dinner and dancing party. The USAA team throws a good party. We did shots of Red Army Whisky from Norman's private stash.

We have to have our bags ready by noon tomorrow to take to the airport and our last lunch in China before departing for the airport at 4:00pm. We should land in LA at 6 something and have to catch the red eye home from LA at 10:45pm. We should arrive in FL around 6:30am. We are a little anxious about the long flight but we have other families with us for support.

This is probably our last post from China, so I will see you on the other side. I will not probably post til at least Sunday night/ Monday morning. I can't wait to see you guys!

Mike, Barbara and Mia Harrell
