It's been 1 year and 10 long months of waiting, filling out papers, figuring out income, waiting, mailing, getting pictures, figuring, writing, pictures...yep Times that by about 4. serious. I kid you not one little speck. it.IS.A.LOT.OF.WORK.

Now we just (get to) fly way up to a part of the country I have never really been, (besides the airport)...
French speaking, quaint, huge cold, Montreal. (or so I hear)...
 yes. I am nervous. very nervous. but I also am excited. very excited. (perty cool how us women can feel about 10 different emotions at once, eh?)
---so think of us, if ya would;) and by the way, I am very open to any french lessons you can give me via your comments!!!!!
(I'll keep ya posted on our doings while we are up there!!)

When we get back James and I are going to build this table!!!!!!----

of course. I will keep you posted on this as well... but I just HAD to show you, my ever faithful listeners!!!
now I will go because I have a new 'This Old House' mag. to stare at :)


  1. Good luck! we went through the same thing getting my husband here to canada. Our paper work took a year to get together and it was a pile an inch and a half thick! All the documentation one has to do! it's unreal!!
    Not ever having been to Montreal, and since my 5 years of highschool french is pretty rusty....I don't have a thing for ya there!

    Have a great trip, I hear it's a great city to visit! :)

  2. Jenn, we will pray that all will go well there. Just enjoy the trip tho too- it's a trip of a lifetime! xoxo

Bonjour,'s been a long time since I took French in school, I think 6th grade:) I think I qualify to know about your emotions on the USA paperwork, although I didn't have to go to Montreal...enjoy your trip...I pray too all will go sounds interesting, and I'll be waiting for a trip report!! Love you!!!
