Inching along...

This past week finally brought a little bit of resolution to some items in my last post. We finally got our orders. What that means in the military world is that we were finally able to schedule packers, shippers, plane tickets, date to check out of our rental home, carpet cleaning, shipping our car, etc. A LOT of plans were hinging on getting those orders. We had been hearing that a lot of people were not getting movers when they wanted them as this is an EXTREMELY busy season in this area. People were having to rearrange vacations/cancel vacations, delay moves, etc. Despite our late orders we were still able to get movers scheduled in a very timely manner. In fact, it was better than we expected. The bad news is that means that one of our shipments goes out this week and I am SOOOO not ready! We have one quick shipment where we will send the items that we need as soon as we arrive in Korea (yet we will be without them for the next month or two...figure that out!), one main shipment of the remainder of things we want to go to Korea, and one final shipment will go to a storage facility to remain here in the U.S. for the two years we are in Korea. It is a LOT of sorting as you can imagine. And I'm really good at avoiding tasks like this until the last minute....except it already is the last minute! Ahh!

We also heard a teeny bit from our agency. We got a bill for our daughter's passport which doesn't mean much of anything except that they are beginning the process to get her one. Still it is progress! We also heard that our care package to her finally got sent. Which means (fingers crossed) that when it arrives we should see a picture of her soon after they deliver it! 

Oh! And I almost forgot! We got our US immigration approval in the mail this week! I was SOOO thrilled! We'll have to reapply for this with our new info after we get to Korea, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem since we have this approval already.

It feels like we are waiting for a lot of things in our life right now:

Waiting...on new pictures of our sweet baby girl. hear about a court date for her. have orders (what we need to start planning ANYTHING for our move). ship our car, schedule our movers, officially reserve plane tickets.
Waiting...for another huge long-term stress to be resolved. hear an answer from God on whether or not to homeschool next year (I think not??).

So thankful I have the Lord to talk to during these times where we wait. Thankful that He is in control of it all.
