Georgia's and Keli's trip to China. .
On July 19-29th, Georgia and KeliCriner left for Tokyo and China for a 10 day trip. . Dr. Dan and Linda Wilson were not able to go with the girls as planned, due to a family emergency, so Georgia and Keli went by themselves. . . which was a step of Faith for all of us. . . The girls saw many of the sights of Beijing, walked on the Great Wall, and played with children in an orphanage for a couple of days. . .it was a great experience in being "flexible" and adjusting when your agenda doesn't always turn out as planned. . . Quite the Adventure. . .here are a few pics: Georgia and Keli inside the "Bird's Nest" site of the 2008 Olympic track and field events.
Enjoying a Popsicle on Tianeman (sp?) Square. . where Chairman Mao's body lays in state. .
The famous Huckabee pose on the Great Wall of China.

Georgia has many, many more pics but this is just a little glimpse into her trip. . .memories for a lifetime. . .
