TB or not TB

I was reading through the requirements for the kids' new schools in VA this morning.  I turns out they are required to have a TB skin test within 90 days of registration.  Whew, they just had one for their Medical Clearances, I think to my smug self.  Because sticking a needle under their skin and injecting some fluid into their arm is not their favorite thing.  I also find this amusing, because I've been filling out paperwork for days for this school, and everything has to be ORIGINALS, not copies.  But I also have to bring copies.  And they want a lot of information, including a lease agreement (original) to make sure we're not trying to sneak into their school. This is slightly different than when I registered the kids for school on the island, which went something like this:

Me:  "Hi, we will be moving to Whidbey Island next month, and I'd like to get my kids registered for school.  I'm just wondering what paperwork I need to have."

School Secretary:  "Oh, yes, you must be the family that bought the house over on Ambey Lane!  Well, just drop the kids off when you get here and we'll call it good."

Anyway, I was pulling out the ORIGINAL copies of the TB test report, and wouldn't you know, their TB tests were done 91 days ago.  EFF.

Hi Kate!! This is Laura Brackett. I have no clue what I am doing, so I hope this works. I won't even begin to explain the bizarre way I happened across this blog.... I cannot believe the journey on which you're about to embark--all parts, places and phases of it. I, for one, will miss you and your family. Know that you will always hold a very special place in my heart for the way you treated our family. Is it ok to check your blog and keep up with your exciting life?!?! I wish you all the very best in D.C. and whatever is beyond. And--enjoy the in-room DS conversations. At least the arguments are quiet.

I can't wait to read the adventures that are to come for your family. I can only imagine how excited Grace must have been when you told her she needed to have the test done again. :-)

Found your blog via Livelines. I would just give them the paperwork you already have and that may be good enough. Though we just moved here from CA and no one said boo to us about it...good luck with the move!
