Fingerprint appointment!

On Saturday we received a letter with our USCIS fingerprint appointments! I was surprised since we sent our request in two weeks ago. I thought it would take much longer to receive the appointment letter!

Igor is enjoying Kindergarten. His favorite part of the day is riding the school bus. Last week he survived the monthly fire drill. The teacher's aide allowed Igor to call home after the fire drill so he could tell me how brave he was. I love his teachers and aides!

Last week out of the blue, Igor said that his little brother won't be able to listen when he comes home. We asked Igor why he thinks this. Igor said, "Remember when I was 3 and 4 years old and I didn't understand?" (translation- remember when I was 3 and 4 years old, I didn't understand English?) Oh, my sweet boy... we do remember. I have no idea how that feels but perhaps you can help little brother when he cannot communicate with us.

Tomorrow is our monthly conference call with our agency. I don't know that we will learn anything new but if we do, I will post it.

Great to hear that Igor did good with the monthly fire drill!! He is growing up! and how insiteful that he knows his brother wont be able to "hear" when he comes home. A true joy that he will be able to go through with your little guy because he knows what it is like. A blessing!! So praying for you still ... wish I had the words.
love ya, jori
