We’re Going to China!


The realization is sinking in that it is T-minus 7 1/2 days until the Ochsner Seven depart for China! As we scramble around to get packed we took a minute to note some thoughts from each member of the clan. Everyone gave their input on these three questions: 1. What are you looking forward to most? 2.What are you most nervous about? 3. What is one thing that you definitely won’t forget to pack?


  1. Having adventures with my family.
  2. Getting all eight of us through airport security.
  3. My soil physics books.


  1. That Tyson will get a true rest from the hectic schedule and our family will enjoy more concentrated family-time.
  2. Probably keeping our family feed on a Chinese diet.
  3. Our Passports!


  1. Probably the new environment and people around me.
  2. The new environment and people around me!
  3. My Camera and Kindle (gotta get books somehow!)


  1. The sights.
  2. The food.
  3. My Kindle.


  1. The airplane ride.
  2. Having to talk.
  3. Clothes!


  1. Going to the Great Wall.
  2. Meeting new people.
  3. My toothbrush.


  1. Being blonde-haired, blue-eyed in a nation of dark-hair, dark-eyed people. (He is now fondly referred to as Toddler-Mao.)
  2. Nothing; anywhere he goes, he’ll get what he wants!
  3. Mommy
