Well...

I'm not sure how much information we'll be getting at this point. Right now, we seem to be in the gap between receiving a passport and entering US immigration (USCIS). We were told to expect at least a week of lag time and haven't heard, yet, if the file has actually been submitted to USCIS. My hope is that we have been and just don't know it yet. ;o)

In the meantime, I've been compiling a list of things we need and need to do before our Asa comes home. I actually purchased some clothes for him online, which made my heart flutter with excitement. I haven't found the perfect homecoming outfit for him yet, though. We might wait and do that as a way to celebrate immigration approval (since that will give us a better idea of when he'll be home and what the weather will be like).

Thank you for all the wonderful and sweet comments on our passport news. It's amazing to be able to share this process with so many supportive friends! We are so grateful for your continued prayers. We're still hoping for the possibility of being on a particular pick-up trip and will certainly be updating the blog as we get more information. Have a fantastic weekend!

I can give you the forecast for weather in Florida - Warm - Tropical Climate - expect frost one night every 10 years - dress in shorts and flip flops.

Hope that helps!!
