I spend most of the day on Saturday washing, chopping and freezing vegetables to be used to make quick meals later in the week. (I work and have three children, so there isn't a lot of time to prepare food in the evenings on weekdays.) On Sunday, I attend church services with my family and then spend the rest of the day relaxing or taking my children on an outing to the park.

Recommendation: A good place to go at weekend in Beijing--National Library.  That's a amazing place, you can go to read books, to listen to a lecture or to search the internet there. Anyway, the atmosphere of study is really impressed me.

It is wonderful! It was a little difficult when they were babies, but now that they are 10, 8, and 5 years old, it is easier to care for them. My 10 year old daughter is pretty responsible and likes to help me do household chores. My 8 year old daughter enjoys playing with her little brother, so she keeps him occupied so I can work on other tasks. I work at their school, so I am able to have lunch with them every day. My job is also flexible enough that I can work from home during the summer vacation so that I can be with them. Children truly are a blessing, and I feel very fortunate to have 3 of them. I think when I return to the USA in a few years, my husband and I might consider adopting another son from our local community.

I guess you're American.
Because one-child policy is strict here.
I admire you for having 3 children.
You're already a successful woman
"Adopting another son " ?
You never run out of energy?
Life is what you make of it
