Our family listens to a radio program put out by Focus on the Family called:
"Adventures in Odyssey." 
 I felt a name that paid tribute to the show and also had something to do with following us around, would be a good combination. 
One of the radio episodes is about how the town of Odyssey- the setting of the radio drama- got its name. The founder said it is a place everyone "oughta see."

It has been over  two months since we left Hong Kong.  
 The week we came home was Easter.
We spent a few days in Tennessee and Grandpa and Grandma bought the kids Easter outfits. 
Jane picked this dress out herself.

  The Roman family ( Nathan's mom side) has an egg hunt for the kids.  This year they hid over 200 hundred!

Elliot's modest size basket couldn't hold all the eggs he found.  At one point he was running and eggs were falling out. lucky for his cousin Trevor (age 6) who was right behind him, to pick them up.

Another tradition of the egg hunt seems to be forgetting how many eggs have actually been hidden. This makes it a little difficult to tell the kids when to stop looking.
Emma found this egg, that contained the rotten remains of money and candy.  
At first  everyone said it must have been an unfounded egg from the previous year, then they remembered that the prior egg hunt was at a different location, so this egg was from two years past.

Holidays overseas away from family and friends can be lonely.  We had been blessed to spend Holidays with great friends in HK. 
 However we are thankful for the chance to once again participate in family celebrations.
