All I can think of right now is: What books do I want to donate for the BOOK SALE? Where are the passport application forms? And can we get a kid's lawyer parent to prepare the affidavits regarding giving permission for a child to travel across the border, and will he do it for free?????
Oh Actually, how do we tell Arwen. I was thinking of getting a cake from the Italian Bakery and writing the news on it: WILDCARD DI TN GF.
Scripture to keep in mind
Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.  My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
