I'm hot stuff!
The faster it goes, the better.
It has been a long, but productive day. At 11am we went back to ICBF so they could see how we were doing with the children. They asked a few questions and seemed to think everything was going fine. We came back, had lunch and did some schoolwork and waited til it was time to take a taxi downtown to sign a paper at the attorney's office. After we signed, we walked to the Notary Public's office to have the paper notarized. Then we decided to go ahead and get the passport photo's done, so we took another taxi to the photo store. Everyone cooperated pretty well with the picture process. After we were done we took another taxi home. This probably took a good 2 hours total. The kids were tired, but really cooperated pretty well. We took them to the park after we got home and had popsicles. By dinnertime they were hot, filthy and hungry. A successful day I think. They are all finally asleep at 10pm (I think). I'm afraid to open the door to see if Andres is asleep before I am ready to go to bed for good. He has had a long day - a short nap and a few fits.
Now we just wait for the court process. We have done everything we can to this point. The papers will be filed with a family court judge either today or Monday. It sounds like it will probably take at least 2 or 3 weeks here and then on to Bogota to finish things up.
We're hoping to get a good nights sleep tonight too. We are both about physically and mentally exhausted. Dan has had a sore throat and my tummy is not entirely happy today. I think some sleep will do us good.
