Mr. Rochester and I are leaving for DC tomorrow! I'm excited because we're going to stay a couple of days with some friends of mine that I haven't seen in years. We're planning on trying to sightsee as much as possible on Friday and Saturday. Then on Sunday evening we're staying at a hotel in downtown DC that is close to where I will be taking the Foreign Service Oral Assessment on Monday. My assessment lasts from 7 am to possibly 6 pm (if I pass) that day so Mr. Rochester will have to find something to do all day that day. Tuesday, we fly back home.
I'm nervous about the Oral Assessment but I've made up my mind that I'm just going to do the best I can and be okay with whatever the outcome is. Of course, if I fail, I'm sure I'll be disappointed but I can always try again (although I'll have to start all over with the written exam). The percentage of people who pass the Oral Assessment is really low so I'm hopeful but not expectant. Thanks for all of your love and support in this endeavor!
Just a quick pregnancy update--things are going great. I'm 28 weeks this week. I had another ultrasound a few weeks ago and I should be getting a third one around my 32 week mark. The baby kicks and moves around a lot and it's really comforting for us to know he's so active. I just hope his activity level stays high for the next 12 weeks!
