This weekend as you celebrate Labor Day festivities in the US, you can think ahead towards the same holiday in China, which occurs on May 1st. Maybe you can arrange an extra Labor Day holiday at work:)!

Seriously, we are sending out a  "mini-newsletter" in August to let families know about upcoming Fall & Winter tours, as well as a special invitation for Hefei families. We also include a brief review about Mid-Autumn Festival for your planning this fun holiday to enjoy with your kids.
As Labor Day approaches, summer is officially near it's close, and we hope it has been a great one!  For our families traveling to the Colorado Heritage Camp this weekend, please stop in and participate in one of our sponsored workshops.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and best wishes to you and your family for the school year!
