  1. Hmmm... might want a couple of extra references, just in case an opinion other than Mom's is needed. Cute!

    Patrick is coming to this side of the planet?!!! Did I miss this information somehow, or is this new? Do tell!

  2. Yep. Patrick will be in China during the first week of June as he will be travelling with the high school orchestra members who raised enough to go. He will play cello on the Great Wall. He made his half of the $3,000 by shoveling snow and babysitting.

    Yay! :)
