Those Two Papers
The two papers finally came from our Home Study agency yesterday. After I kissed the Fed Ex man (OK, not really) I ran down and overnighted them to the Sec. of State for Authentication. Just to show how smart I am I enclosed an overnight envelope for them to send the form directly to our agency. If they process them quick enough our dossier could be on its way to Ethiopia by Thursday, if not, it will wait until next Thursday. That is the day our agency mails documents out of there office.

So, we are almost there. Then the real waiting begins for a referral.

I can't wait to be a waiting family!!!!

OK, off to bed. I'm taking the kids to the L.A. county fair tomorrow. Home schooler's get in free (they even sent me a free parking pass) and we can go in two hours before they open to the general public. Of course that means we have to get up before 8:30 so we can make it to the Fair by 9:00 a.m. You should have heard the whines about that this evening.

I am such a mean Mom.
