Details, details, details...

So I just received the "official" Fulbright Grant Packet which looks like a contract (I guess it IS, actually). Once copies of this material travel to the head-honchos at the Administration Building of Northwest Missouri State University we've cleared another hurdle.

Now we gather all the paperwork like birth certificates, marriage license, Grant Packet, etc. for notarization followed by sending to Jefferson City, MO, for apostille. After that we've got to: 1) continue to learn Latvian, 2) find an apartment, 3) look into overseas insurance, 4) figure out what & how much/little we should take, 5) work on travel arrangements, 6) practice trumpet for a February trumpet recital, and much, much more.

Anyway, we're happy for the opportunity and I know that this will be an experience that "the ladies" and I will remember for the rest of our lives...kind of like those canoe trips down the Missouri River with my old man, except MUCH safer!
