Some movement

I got an email this morning from the Jacksonville USCIS office and they're going to forward our homestudy to the Missouri office!  That means shortly after they get it, we'll get our fingerprinting appointments!  Woohoo

Also, I decided to squeeze in one more class before we leave for Darya.  I figured I might as well get 3 more credits under my belt before adding number 4 to our crew.  It's an art class and counts as my arts/humanities prerequisite. It sounds like a lot of fun, and I think it will be low stress and I doubt much if any homework!  Scratch that!  I decided not to take it in the hopes that we may travel before it's over!  It ends August 11.  Is it wrong for a mom to dream of going that soon?? :-) Also, it might be nice to have absolutely nothing scheduled this summer.  Just relax and have fun with my family!  For those of you that don't know, I started back at school earlier this year.  I'm on the slow track in the hopes of becoming an RN (it will take several years at my pace).  I have a degree from Bible college (where I met Joel), but alas none of those classes transfer so I'm starting from ground zero.  That's totally fine.  But as busy as I may be, it's nothing like my mom!  At one point, she was taking something like 30 credits, working full-time, and raising 6 kids!!  That's equivalent to walking uphill in the snow both ways over a mile to school.


  1. Great news Marianne!! You must be so excited. Also, the art class will be a lot of fun. You will love it!

  2. so happy you are able to track down your application. i dont think august is wrong , shoot I want to be on the plane with you !!
