So, yesterday we had the meeting at the Superintendent’s office to sort out schooling for #1 Son. 
Although we took all the paperwork we could, we still need one further proof of residency, but we have 30 days to provide that, so hurrah. 
However we did discover that not only are towns the same name across multiple states, we have same road names, and same road numbers across the road. So putting in an address in Google maps took us to the same number on the road but to a residential house in a different town because long ass road πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
Still, we made our meeting and it’s all good. We should find out by Tuesday which school he has been placed in, and we got to make a set of selections. 
Fingers crossed for Lincoln Elementary, Melrose please good audience.  All schools have before and after school programmes (for a fee) so that’s a useful thing to know for as and when I go back to work. 
On the work permit front, I need a new passport photo. So today (at 16:30) I took us all out to the local USPS.  However they only take photos (no booths here) between 09:00-15:00 Monday – Friday. So we will be going back tomorrow morning. 
However we did a little window shopping on the way back. #1 Son chose a gift for daddy:

He was so proud of his surprise πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
And today the kids actually played together nicely for a while:

Then TT threw a tennis ball down the toilet πŸ™„

She also insisted I hold her seated on said toilet today for over 10 minutes. 
And we got a lovely surprise in the mail today:

I may not need to buy a hat, but a new dress will most certainly be required πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  1. it’s lucky TT does not know how to flush the toilet, or Mr Maintenance Man might have been needed again. I assume you have American-style electric toilets? They are utterly brilliant, except when there is a power cut…

    1. She’s trying to work it out but we have manual ones with tiny handles so she can’t get a good grip… yet

  2. Yes, but when you flush the toilet, do you get a powerful whirlpool that removes everything in a very efficient manner, or is the water released in the same way as in European toilets? In north America, most toilets are of the former (electric) type, which is great fun to watch but not very wise in a country prone to power cuts when the weather is bad. That’s why many people, including Domi, have their own generators.
