Waiting for the Wait can be Grand

Well, no major updates since the last time. The only thing we really learned was that the main Bethany office has indeed received our dossier documents and are reviewing them. At the moment, we are literally waiting to be placed on the waiting list. We're also waiting for our I-171H approval from the immigration service.

Luckily for us, this past week of waiting for waiting has gone by like a breeze. My company sent me to Scottsdale, Arizona for a GIS and BPM software conference. The wife came along on the cheap - only really having to buy a plane ticket. Obviously the room and rental care were already paid, and even most of the food. As I'm sure you can all imagine, it's hard to do anything without thinking about our Carmen, even though we haven't even met yet. On the plane, we talked about what it'll be like to fly with her. In the Marriott Hotel, we talked about what it'll be like to be visiting her, which will take place in a hotel room - a Marriott to be specific.

Among all of that was an opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon. Let me tell you, I don't care what you believe about exactly how the Creation took place. You can't see the Grand Canyon without at least wondering if there is a God! So random, yet so perfect. So deep, yet to tall. So complex, all with a small river still meandering through the bottom. It's way more impressive than even words or pictures can describe. Here's a few samples, but do find a way to visit this amazing place yourself.

I continue to be impressed with our digital camera after a trip like this. It's Canon Powershot A95 - which is now a couple of years old, but it's easy to use always takes great shots, without hogging up batteries. Still, pictures do not do God's work justice here.
