for a million reasons, i am just beyond tired. but i have to quickly share a couple funny shots of the day. today while eric was at the soccer fields for 5 hours straight w/ the four oldest kids, Connor and i climbed a portion of the Great Wall i had never seen. Today was the most amazing day i have seen at the wall. the visibility was amazing- you could see forever without a hint of muck or haze. it was a BLAST being on the wall for the first time with so many. it really is an awe-inspiring thing... going to bed.
