I mailed off our application for our I600a at the beginning of the month and I have finally gotten something back from the US Department of Homeland Security!! YAY! I know it is a small step forward but right now any step is very exciting for me. We have to go all the way to Lubbock to get our finger prints done. It seems crazy that we have to go all the way there but I guess its better then going to Dallas or Houston for it! Our appointments are set for January 13. My appointment is for 2pm and Phil's at 3pm. I always like getting to go to Lubbock anyways. I now have a reason to hit some of my favorite junk stores and boutiques.
