1 month since we landed!
« on: March 24, 2014, 09:17:57 am »
Hey everyone. Yesterday marked one month since we landed. Time really has been passing fast here!! Time moves slower in the DR. My husband talks to his family on Skype every few days or so for 3-4 hours at a time. My son and I are set up on insurance, now we're getting him set up. We're going on the 7th next month to hopefully find out the sex of baby#2. We've found a great church that we're loving also. He's involved in their co-ed softball league, which has really taught him patience since church leagues here are quite a bit different than the teams in the DR. Yesterday the coach was late so he took over the whole practice and lead. I'm glad he is not shy.

He got his Texas state ID (temporary) last Thursday, we're waiting for the card to come in the mail. His social came about 2 weeks after we landed. We STILL don't have his green card which is starting to worry me. We paid the fee on the 26th, so it's been almost a month already. Maybe today?! He's went and applied for a few jobs, but so far no interviews. We were hoping his license would switch right over, which was silly... He has to take a written and a drivers test. I do as well since my license was expired by the time we got here and it's from a different state. I also have to take adult driver's ed, which is a real pain since I've been driving for 4 years now.


So far we're doing well, he is adjusting well in my opinion. There's my little update! :)

in my opinion----if u can drive in the D.R, they should automatically transfer the dr license to one from here!! if u can survive a day driving in the capital, it's a piece of cake here!! lol I once drove from Puerto plata to Santiago. well I stopped on the side of the road about 8 miles outside of Santiago because my husband was scared for his life and kept saying, mi amor ten cuidado, ten cuidado, un motor cuidadoo, I finally got annoyed and just pulled over and let him take the wheel. lol I've been driving since I was 9 so it's not that difficult, but when u got a nervous yelling husband in the passenger seat, things change. LOL. glad to know u guys r doing well in Texas, we wont be flying to texas then driving here. Change of plans. But I will be in San Antonio for a business meeting from April 21-25  :yawn: haha now we're just praying my husband and the girls get the visa before the 20th.


Do you miss the D.R yet??!  :domrep:

Thanks everyone. It's normal that we still don't have the GC yet? Still nothing in the mail today...

Clary- I actually kind of agree with them having to take the driver's test here. There are actually laws that are enforced here that they need to learn. Plus in SA we have the highways that are kind of confusing and he needs to learn how to use them still. It's inconvenient, but I do agree with it actually!  :rtfm:
