As for what happened today...

One of the volunteers helped facilitate a camp back in the States where they studied China as part of their activities.  Each kid made a bracelet for a chinese orphan and signed a huge banner that is now hanging in our cafeteria.  We are now returning the favor.

This kid, Teddy, really loves Adam.  He was hanging out with us last night in the hall before bed.  Tonight after the movie, he wanted a picture with Adam and I... 'Ge ge' and 'Jie Jie'.  (Big brother and big sister)
There have been so many happy faces this week...

... a few more days and we will see a whole new set!

Chris has become a great buddy... he volunteered these past two weeks and was so great with the kids.  It's been so much fun having a stand-in little brother so splash in the pool, joke with and share oreos and and crackers!  He's leaving on Saturday... and I'm gonna miss him.  Today at the water park, we had a final slide down huge water slide.  It was fun.  

You better come back next year, bud!  The water will be waiting!
