If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Uneventful but Memorable

We were supposed to go to see the Terra Cotta Warriors today but Trent and I did not have a peace about getting the girls out in that much pollution.  There is a lot of walking outside to get to the warriors and pollution is still at hazardous levels today.  I think our guide was relieved when we asked to do something indoors instead.

She took us to a Chinese History Museum downtown and it was really interesting.  There were still some warriors there so I think Trent enjoyed it.  It is amazing to see artifacts that are 7000 years old.

After the museum, we went to lunch with our guide.  I really like her and wish we lived closer.  Maggie did great at lunch and then went crazy on the ride back to the hotel.  What started as frustration at having to sit in the van turned into a full blown temper tantrum.  It got scary when her nose and lips turned blue and I could not do anything to console her.  We got back to the hotel and she fell right to sleep.  Note to self- do not let this child get over tired.    Please pray for our plane ride in 2 days to Guangzhou.  I am a bit concerned about her willingness to sit through it combined with the stress the altitude will put on her heart.  

Daddy heads home tomorrow.  We will miss him bunches but I am glad he is getting home to the boys.  

Thanks for praying.

Happy you had a great day minus the the temper tantrum. I don't know if you know this trick, but if you bring her legs up to her chest when she has blue lips it should help her become pink again as the blood will not has as far to travel. I have a baby with a heart condition and we had to do this a couple of times prior to his surgery. Praying for your family.
