Scholastic book club
Lily did come home the week before spring break with a scholastic book order form, I was thrilled to learn that the school participates in it. The prices are a bit higher but with the cost of shipping and taxes I'm not surprised. I do plan on making an appointment next week to go book shopping at an apartment another mom told me about. No one lives there, it's just used as a shop, weird I know, but this is China and weird for us is normal for them.
The only other news I have to share is our upcoming trip to Hangzhou. It will be our first train ride and our first over night trip since our move here. I'm already planning other trips for the summer and fall. With the summer and warm weather around the corner I'm thinking Tokyo and Xian for summer trips as they are North and shouldn't be as hot. In the fall I'm hoping to spend several days in the Bangkok area. Bali, Singapore, and Beijing are all also on my must see list. Whether we fit them all in this year I can't say, but I will try...
