Passports
Posted by Gordon Smith

I just spent a good chunk of my day applying for new passports for my five children. If you have never had this experience, count yourself lucky. Because of concerns over kidnapping, both parents must appear before a postal service employee upon application. The documentation is extensive, including an application (same basic information, but filled out longhand five times), birth certificates, and old passports. Oh, and don't forget your checkbook: $70 for each child. Unless you need it expedited, in which case you can more than double that. On the heels of completing my tax return, this was not a happy day.
