Even in America you have to queue up!
Today we renewed our two younger children's passports. I slipped out during lunch at school (I'm a teacher) assuring my principal I'd be back in time to teach my 7th graders. I headed to the local city hall, a ten minute drive away. Due to tor [...]

Shots and Itinerary
