Yesterday we went to the Social Security office to get Ursula a new card with her new name, and it was hard not to be excited. I know it is mostly symbolic, but I still thought it was cool. Thinking ahead to our travels is a big part of it as well. I mean, there is a lot more for her to do: driver's license, passport, etc. (guys have it easy with the lack of a name change), but just knowing that we are on track to go on some amazing adventures together is an incredible feeling.
|I seriously can't wait to go to Beijing.|
I think the Beijing trip is going to be unreal. I can't even imagine what it will be like there; that is a place with some serious history. There will definitely be some culture shock to deal with, but it should also be a lot of fun. That should be about a nine month trip, starting in September.
Keep checking the blog; we should be hearing from our photographer soon, so there will be some professional pictures coming.
