Taking the Oath



Today was our U.S. Consulate appointment where Zoey and Kate received visa's to enter the United States. Each time we raise our hands to take the oath for our kids, I get teary eyed. Zoey and Kate have no idea the gift of citizenship they are being given, but as their Mama, I am acutely aware. When those visa's in their passports are stamped in Chicago, the girls will become U.S. citizens. Kate will have this momentous event occur on her 3rd birthday! We were not allowed to take camera's to the Consulate, so there are no photos to share.

We did nothing else noteworthy today, so I will post some random pictures from the last few days.



Jeff wanted me to take this picture to show the lack of railing next to this drop off into the canal.


If you send your clothes out to be laundered, they will come back neatly folded and/or pressed and packaged.


Follow the Leader...Baby follows, too


Signs that brought a smile to our faces...

Wow! I can't believe how low the canal water is in that photo. If it's the canal I'm remembering in Guangzhou...it was flooded and the water was running down the streets and into the hotels! Congrats on your oaths!
