Here are a couple of pictures from Kiara's concert. She is quite the poser lately. So far our summer has been busy, but I am hoping after this week things will be more relaxing. We have had a lot of routine doctor's appointments. Today I was sitting in the dentist chair thinking how nice it was that this was the last doctor type of appointment for a long time, then I was told I have a cavity and have to come back! Oh, well, it could be much worse. The weather has been wonderful here, so it has been nice to be outside a bit.
On the adoption front, we got our new I-171H in the mail with our new fingerprint expiration dates. I am praying we never need to update those again since they don't expire until Sept 2009.
I got the endorsement letter from our state that I needed to be able to submit my I-824 which changes our approval with USCIS to adopt from Uzbekistan to Russia. So, the I-824 was submitted on June 23rd and they say it takes 2-3 weeks.
Yesterday, Ryan and I went and got our second round of Hepatitis shots. We don't get the third round for 6 months. Kiara has been vaccinated for Hep B, but not A. Since she will be going on the second trip with us, I need to get her vaccinated for Hep A. It is done in 2 rounds and she is old enough for her Kindergarten shots, so next month I think I will take her for a few of those and the Hep A shot.
Now, I am working on getting Ryan's passport renewed since it expires in spring 2009. Man, there just always seems to be some type of paperwork I need to do for the adoption!
I did get good news from my agency that it seems like things are going faster in Russia than they expected! But, I know next week that could all change. It was good to hear good news for a change!
