过年好 (guò nián hǎo)...

Happy New Year! Yesterday was the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, the year of the Dragon. Michael is a dragon, so this is supposed to be his "special" year. We had our annual get together with other local adoptive families, only with a twist this year. Two of the adoptive families have exchange students this year, and brought some other exchange students along with them, so it really was a multi-cultural experience! Taiwan, Mexico, Germany, and China (exchange students, not just our daughters) were all represented at our celebration, which was a lot of fun.
Only Josh was missing, as he stayed home because he knew that Chinese buffet would be too much of a temptation and torture, since he had to make weight the following day (today...and his dedication paid off, as Mike just sent me a text that he won both his matches tonight, as did the team).
