  1. CUTE!!!!

    The kids had such a great time at "Camp Marla"!
    It is so surreal that last year at this time we were in your backyard making potions and reviewing binders!

    I posted some of the kids on my blog

    See you soon- Shel

  2. Hi, Marla,
    WOW, you have an international camp. Your camp looks so interesting and having lots of fun. The kids won't forget this amazing summer.

  3. Hello, Dear; Marla:

    Thank you so very much for the link you sent, I finally have some time today to browse thru more of your travel to China blog, it was wonderful and you are such a great writer, reading thru Tian tian's biography brought tears to my eyes, yet she is very forturnated to have a Mama like you to give her a great opportunity to be brought up in U.S. she should be a lot better off than most of her own age. She is beautiful and lucky and she would be growing into a wonderful young lady just like your daughter. and your son as handsome as Harry Potter.

    I showed some of the pictures to my husband and he was impressed that China indeed look so clean, I kept telling him that the dirty scene was from 23 years ago. I hope your blog would inspire him taking a trip to China with me in the future.

    Thanks again and wish Tian Tian all the luck!

    Wish your boy and girl all the best for the coming school year.

    See you soon!


Thank you so much for stopping by! We love to hear from you and appreciate every comment! Your thoughts, well wishes, and words of wisdom will be preserved here in our blog, we plan to turn it into a hard cover book for our daughter.
