Today is Aidan's Second Anniversary of Citizenship Day! Two years ago, we flew straight from Moscow to Atlanta. Once in Atlanta, we handed over our sealed and untampered with packet of documents that we had received at the US Embassey--at the same time Aidan's Immigrant Visa was issued--and we were processed back into the United States. . .and Aidan became a US Citizen! I'd have to go back and double check, but I think it was about 2 to 4 weeks later that we received, in the mail, Aidan's Certificate of Citizenship signed by the President of the United States declaring Aidan to be a Naturalized US Citizen. . .
This was taken just after our paperwork was processed in Customs and Immigration--against the rules to do this for some reason!
And now, he has enjoyed so many of the rights and priviledges of that Citizenship.
Including partying with the big rat at Chuck E. Cheese. . .
He is truly an American boy now. . .
Daddy has to work the 3-11 shift, so Aidan and I are going to play outside when we get home and ride his bike. Then, I plan to do another American thing. . .order Chinese take out! : )
Happy Citizenship Day Aidan!
PS. By the way, the State Department has sample Citizenship Tests online that you can take. They vary the about 100-200 questions. . .I took it during our wait. . .I got a 100%! But, the questions aren't easy for those of us who have forgotten so much that we learned. . .try it out!
