I have been "hereby notified to appear for a Naturalization Oath Ceremony on Feb 11th, 2011." Three weeks from today. We are trying to organize tickets and it looks like it'll be a real quick trip, but I am so excited. The kids are even more ecstatic that I'm finally going. Their darling dad has told them 'that while mom is away we're going to stay up late and watch movies in the livingroom until we fall asleep.'
Once I have my Naturalization Certificate I can apply for my US passport at the Embassy in Lilongwe. It hasn't been easy to naturalize since we've never lived in the US, but there is a provision made for missionaries which doesn't require any residential time in the US. The only catch is that I have to be there in person to take the oath. I am flying alone for the first time, without my favourite man and my sweet babies-please pray that all goes well.
