Day 3 in Nanning

It is raining in Nanning, so we are staying in the hotel room and playing this a.m. Jeannie is working on learning her numbers and alphabet. We have been playing with a beach ball and puzzles all morning. We are going to travel to Walmart after lunch and nap time. We learned yesterday the "hard way" that we cannot skip naps. Both girls were tired and emotional yesterday p.m. It has been a hard adjustment for Gia. If Jeannie was playing with daddy, then Gia wanted daddy. If Jeannie wanted mommy, then Gia wanted mommy. Both were mad, sad, crying, happy, playing from one moment to the next. We think this must be what it is like to have teenage girls with PMS!
For the most part, they play very well together.
Enjoy the photos,

Theresa, Bob, Gia and Jeannie
