busy-busy fun day

You guys crack me up.
My busyness yesterday wasn't exactly a
mysterious thing.
Karen, your comment made me laugh because
yes, I was on the phone last night (fuming mad) with D*ll.
My advice to you all...don't buy a D*ll.

But my day was exciting!
First and EARLY was Nick's big day at
the Kansas City Crusaders Junior Masters!
We left so early that I picked Lucy
up out of bed and put her in her car seat (PJ's & all) and
as we were driving down the drive-way she said,
"But it's not day time yet!"
Boy, I'll say.

Nick arriving at the fancy shmancy country club.

Waiting for his ride to take him to the driving range to warm up. Notice the socks? In keeping with tradition at this course, they strictly require crew socks. Nick thinks they are sexy.

And because Nick would rather die than have me on the course taking pics at such an event, the next pic is the end of the tournament where he is signing & turning in his score card.

Nick and his caddy/golf instructor. We are so grateful that he gave up most of his day to help Nick!

But unfortunately, this was a really difficult course
and it just wasn't Nick's best day.
It was an amazing experience for him though!

On the way home we stopped at Krispy Kreme to
bring home a dozen donuts.
Isn't that the way everyone celebrates a great
tournament?


***************

From there the day got even better!
The US Consulate sent
our 2nd LOA to the CCAA!!!
Which simply means...
everything is now done for our TA to be issued.
But that probably won't be for another
3-4 weeks.
The time will fly...cause I've got tons to do.
Oh, and our passports/visas are due to arrive
back today!!

Yes, it sure looks like you guys have been busy, too! Even if Nick's score wasn't the best, I'm sure it was good experience for him. Congrats on the LOA being sent - YEAH!!!!!

WOOHOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Exciting news that you have your 2nd LOA!!!! Happy packing--not much time left! :)

The socks...yes, I noticed them instantly and thought, "When did wearing black crew socks with shorts become fashionable again? Isn't that just for old me?" :)

Sounds like a great day---ya can't go wrong with Krispy Kreme. We've had bad experience with Dell too. Now DH is a Hewlett Packard only-man.
How long did the passports take? We have to get 1 for Avery.

Karen said...

Glad I could make you laugh:-) Sorry about Nick's golf tournament. What an awesome learning experience. I bet he'll conquer that course next time he plays there. Woohooo about your TA getting closer. Oh my, just thinking about you getting so close to travel gets me anxious:-)
