I keep getting updates on what the girls are getting done while I am class, and I must say “wow” they are efficient. I have been slowly compiling a list of documents and legal stuff I need to need together before we take off. It’s always interesting and frustrating to realize how much legal crap you need to travel to another country, even if it is just across the border from us. I think in some ways the USA may be more tight than other countries I have visited. I understand why but for heaven’s sake we are family (one that is one friendly terms. I am still making sure that I have a letter from the parents stating their permission to take my younger sisters across the border. It just seems safer somehow. On another note, sent off for the new passport today, as always my picture makes me look like a snob, but what are you supposed to do when the photographer keeps telling you “don’t smile, no expression”. Sigh...

March break is being put to good use, well depending to your point of view. As a teacher my time was not as well used as it could have been as I did not get enough of my marking done. However in terms of planning it was an excellent way to pass the time. Maps were laid out, cities were googled, hotels and attractions were mulled over and compared. And just for the fun of it a list was made of the weird, big, and odd along our route...choices, choices, so much fun.
