Our agency emailed this morning with confirmed travel dates. We REALLY wish that we were going sooner. Our kids start school on August 6th so Taylor and Audrey will miss their first days of HS and Jr. High along with all of the associated registrations and orientations. We'll also miss Xander's first day of kindergarten which breaks my heart but Papa Jim Jim and Grandma Judy will be here to see him off. We'll do what we have to do to get our girl HOME! Our travel schedule looks something like this:
7/23 - Depart U.S.
7/24 - Arrive in Beijing
7/25 - Beijing Tour
7/26 - Fly to Jiangxi-Meili's Province
7/28 – MEILI DAY!!!
7/31 - Fly to Guangzhou in the morning
8/4 - Consulate appointment
8/5 - Go to consulate to pick up passport with visa and take oath in the afternoon
8/7 – Earliest you can depart from China
It's later than we hoped but at least we know when we are leaving! :)
