Yee-Haw!

That's what we shout in the south when our I-171H arrives...after 9 weeks, 5 days! Finally, that huge stack of papers we've been collecting for 6 months is one step closer to Addis Ababa. I have to say it took me a while to find that tiny little "I-171H" on the single, unimpressive sheet of paper. There really should be more fanfare. At least a big, fat packet like you get when you're accepted to college. Spence thought we'd been rejected when he saw the small envelope.

My blog buddies are going to think I'm crazy, but I just got home from Nashville tonight and I don't think I'll get back til Monday. So yes, I'm going to sit on everything for two days instead of making a special trip. Gas is just too high!
