Here are A and B on the first day of school last Thursday. A will be a sophomore and B will be a 7th grader. They were both being jerks right before I took the ceremonial first day of school picture, so they do look a little sheepish. It was an exciting day, because not only was it the first day of school, but our Article 5 was also picked up at the US Consualte in Guangzhou. This means we are waiting to receive travel approval from the CCAA. This last week people were receiving their travel approval in 9 days. 9 days! That's crazy fast! We also got our home study update on Friday, which means I need to send it in for fingerprint renewal. However, I need time to read through the I800 stuff to make sure I mark everything correctly. The problem is, if I have questions I can't ask them until people are in at the office; either USCIS or with our agency. When they are at work, I'm at work and it is REALLY difficult to make any sort of personal phone call at work. School just started and I'm SWAMPED with all sorts of little things. I guess I'll try to figure it out as best I can tomorrow and try to find time to call and ask questions if I need to on Monday. What I would really like is a super-fast TA and consulate appointment. That way I wouldn't have to worry about fingerprint renewal. But it's better to be safe than sorry.
