I got beautiful soapstone carvings made for each of our girls today. One has a dragon on top (Abby was born in the year of the Dragon) with her name and Chinese name (actually the phonetic equivalent) on the bottom. You dip it in ink and she can stamp her name(s) Evie’s has a dog on top as she was born in the year of the Dog. It has her name ‘Evie’ and then the Chinese characters for Meng Yi (her Chinese name) The carvings are just beautiful.
We also went to the mall today… it was SIX STORIES tall. It was not as bright and shiny as our malls are, and we couldn’t find any rhyme or reason to the shop configuration. All in all it was honestly overwhelming. Apparently I have always taken being able to read for granted. It is so disorientating when you can’t read the signs!!!
Grandma is going over her purchases for the day and labeling what is for whom, Evie is taking a much deserved nap after 6 hours of shopping, and David and Abby are at the pool. I think we’re going to take a walk around the island tonight and enjoy things.
