My brother in law is going to be visiting this weekend from Chicago. He’s bringing two of his teenage kids with him. Oh this should be fun!
We called my brother in laws cell phone last night right around midnight just to see where he was. You see he’d said that he expected to be at Chris’ parents house by 1 or 2 a.m. Unfortunately it took him about two hours to get out of Chicago yesterday so he was behind in his drive and he was just at the US Canada border in Sarnia. Yeah, he was way behind – about four hours behind!
We found out that this trip isn’t just a visit to Canada to see relatives. When his kids were born we thought that he’d filled papers for them so that they’d be dual citizens of both the USA and Canada. You see, up until a year or two ago my brother in law had retained his Canadian citizenship and his wife is American so his kids should be eligible to have citizenship in both countries.
So right now I’m not sure if his kids have their Canadian papers or not. I don’t think they do since my brother in laws mission this visit is to secure Social Insurance Numbers (SIN) for his kids. I would have thought that they’d have had that since birth.
Hopefully things go smoothly otherwise that’s all we’ll hear about most of this coming week!
Chris’ brother was supposed to come to Toronto on Friday but now he might not come until Saturday due to this paperwork problem that he’s trying to resolve.
As long as we get to go to the Taste of the Danforth this weekend I’ll be happy. We didn’t go last year when Tim came down because he had his youngest child with him and he was afraid of losing him in the huge crowd!
