The passport arrived this morning. Carl is at the airport right now ready to go on his whirlwind (now week long) trip to France. He is flying to Bordeaux and will spend a few days there before joining the university students last leg of their student abroad experience (aka sightseeing). He'll be going to some places out of his old mission area so that will be fun for him. I'm sad he's gone but I'm glad he finally got everything resolved and could leave the country. I've never seen him so stressed and depressed since I've known him. When the passport came this morning you could see the weight lifted off his shoulders.
I'm going to spend my "free" time tonight finishing up my Reefer sweater. It is almost finished and is looking really, really good. Probably my most awesome knitting to date.
