My big summer kick-off plans were derailed by a sore throat. I spent yesterday laid out on the couch for most of the day, aside from feeding my children and making sure they didn't trash the house too badly. David gently reminded me (as he does every time) that he's happy to stay home when I'm sick, but it wasn't too bad, and the kids are pretty good about dealing with sick me. I figure, if there's no fever, we can handle it. I just have very low expectations for the day (Pajama day! Indoor picnic! Dora and Diego!).
Today we took one step closer to Little Brother and our trip to China. Once our homestudy was finished (which we managed to do, despite some hiccups), we sent our I-800-A application to United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) and waited for our fingerprinting appointment. No, our fingerprints have not changed since we last did this. Yes, they make us do it again anyway. (insert eye roll)
Our appointment was this morning! It should be 2-6 weeks before we get our actual I-800A, but that's the last thing we need before everything can be authenticated and sent to China. If everything goes quickly, we could be looking at a file by July!
