i accomplished the first step towards obtaining bean's passport today, by taking her to the aaa office to get her regulation-size passport photos taken. i was under the impression that it was free, but no, i had to shell out six bucks for them. how i wish she would allow me to scan them, so you could see her in all her official cuteness, but she pretty much hates them, so the only person who's going to be getting a peek at them is whatever official-type passport inspector she may encounter at the airport.
step two, submitting the passport application, will be taken next week. i am gathering everything we'll need (birth certificate, social security number, eighty-two dollars, two parents, and the drivers licenses of those parents).
hey, did i mention that bean is traveling abroad this summer?? she is going to england with a&j, robot boy, and pink! lucky girl.
