As we were making plans to accept the offer for this job in Beijing, I remembered that our friends the A– from Virginia had just posted something on Facebook about moving to China. I sent her an email to find out where they’d be. Beijing! This was exciting for all of our kids (they line up pretty well age-wise) but I also realized that Beijing is huge and we’d probably be really far apart. And we are. They live up towards the embassy in the branch that meets in people’s homes. It’s even further away than church for us and church is an hour and 15 minutes on the subway. But it’s still fun to see what they are doing and to eventually get together now and then.
