Here is a picture of me in a very happy moment. I realize that not all of us get so excited about paper, but we just ploughed our way through some red tape and have in our little paws all the documents we need when we go.
The final step will be to take several documents to be authenticated at the Philippine Consulate. This will likely entail a day trip to the Big City to visit the Consulate and to also drop some boxes off to be shipped on ahead of us to the Philippines.
Things are looking good- now just waiting on The Email that says we're officially accepted to the field.
