For some reason it was really tricky to get appointments here in the desert, so my sister and I were able to scramble together a plan for Elle to jump in with her cousins in Utah (she had just started working there and those guys are going to Uganda with the same organization we are a little later).
And then we were done, off to send in those certificates with what seemed like a million other pdf forms and blanks to fill out for every one of us.
Abby and Max did theirs en route to China and one got messed up, the other got lost in the shuffle since Abby’s email got messed up, we had to re-do Grace’s since the credit card company was worried about fraud when we paid, and there were quite a few other hiccups. But as of last week I had all those approval letters printed out and sometimes stuff like that can give you the biggest high!
Other than visas and yellow fever and agendas we are reading “Thirst” with Lucy and Claire and Lucy is INTO it I tell you! The kids are working on reports on different facets of the things we’ll be doing and we are working on gathering school supplies in the village we will be building the school in in Uganda. We are trying to take a whole slew of supplies so we’re open to any donations if people would like to help! Let me know if you want more details. We are so excited to be working with this awesome organization Family Humanitarian and can’t wait to get there all together.
