What's next?

As our school year winds down, we've been getting this question a lot and we're pretty curious about the answer too :)

We don't know what our next "job" will be and we still feel okay about that.  I remind myself of the past few years, that we didn't get our Palau position until late July and we didn't get this position until the end of June.  Meanwhile, here's what the next few months look like:

June 23 -- Last day of school and the dorm closes at 9 pm!
June 25 -- We fly to Lijiang, China to do the Tiger Leaping Gorge hike & explore the area
June 30 -- We fly to Guilin, China to do some more exploring
July 5 -- We fly to the US, into Spokane. We'll spend 2 - 3 weeks with Jason's family & then head down to California to visit my family.

After that, we don't know.. 
We are still hopeful for a caretaking situation and applied for caretaking jobs at a vacation home in Costa Rica and a horse ranch in Georgia (US) this week.  If caretaking doesn't pan out for us this time, we've got a few other ideas up our sleeves ... we are excited about the endless possibilities!  And being able to look back and be reminded of how well God has taken care of us in the past really is really thrilling.

Each day I see things here in Shanghai that I will very much miss seeing.  This city has so many interesting and beautiful places that usually pop up unexpectedly.  I'm trying to capture all the sites, sounds and smells in my memory and luckily I have a camera to help with some of that.

And last, but definitely not least ... you see a lot of interesting eyebrows in China, but these are by far the thickest, long eyebrows I have seen yet!
