Sticking Out

Our family is going to stick out like a sore thumb in China.

First, there are six of us.  China is a communist country that still limits the number of kids a family can have.  I believe they have relaxed this policy over the last several years, but most families still have only one, maybe two kids.

Second, we are tall.  Well, Brandon and the kids are tall.  I’m average.  B is 6’3″.  I’m only 5’6″ and a little bit, but I’m sure I’ll still tower over some people we meet.  The kids are all tall for their respective ages.

Third, except Little Guy and myself, everyone has BRIGHT blue eyes.

Fourth, at one point we were all blonde.  Only Squirt, with his nearly white hair, can still claim this, but the rest of us still have very light hair compared to the residents of Asia.  Squirt is going to be treated like a celebrity over there.
