Today we reserved just for our family. While the rest of Costa Rica was celebrating “Good Friday,” our family took a road trip . . . to see the gorgeous Orosi Valley . . . and Tapanti National Park. Thank heavens we are residents! It only cost us 800 colones each (around 1.33 per person)… Read More Easter Family Day 2019
We have been having a fun week! So much so, I have been too tired/distracted to blog. 🤦🏻♀️ Sorry about that! But here is a post about some of the fun that we have been having this week!

I feel fantastic! I wish I could handle feeling this way every day . . . but then how would one know what FANTASTIC really feels like? Our missionary is on the up and up!

We went to Kidzania today. The two youngest got passports. GingerSnap is almost too old to go, so she just got the credit card. It is literally a city just for kids. The kids were expected to work and earn kidzo (money), so they could buy experiences. What they earned went onto their own credit… Read More Kidzania
My mother’s heart is breaking tonight because my baby boy is sick, in a far away land. His lungs are sick with bronchitis and there isn’t anything I can do to take this away from him or make it better for him. I ache that I am thousands of miles away from him. Does he… Read More My Mother’s Heart is Breaking . . .
Today was just one of those “Mom Days”. You know the kind I’m talking about. You had a plan but at every turn, something else demanded your attention. Like helping my second oldest daughter face a yucky day, by helping her finally learn to make something she has been craving (rice pudding). But right as… Read More One of those days . . .
This conference weekend went by pretty quickly. I think it was because we had a little help from a fun new game called Fantasy General Conference. We received this game from Paul’s brother and his wife, Sunday night during FHE (family home evening via Skype). Our family immediately filled out our guesses so that we… Read More Fantasy General Conference

While Paul, Joy Boy and Spencer enjoyed the Priesthood Session at our home (in English), while the girls, Sarah,… Read More General Conference April 2019
