Sorry I haven’t written for a few days. I was on a much needed holiday with family who are visiting from the States. They invited us to join them, and their 3 children, to watch mother turtles bury their eggs in the sandy beaches of Ostinal, Costa Rica. It was a fascinating experience for all… Read More Ready, Set, Go!
We had so much fun this month. Our family loves how Christmas has the power to bring people together. Like spending the day with this amazing family that GingerSnap and El Gringo met on an airplane to Costa Rica! The ladies of this family came to our home and spent part of their day with… Read More Quick and Easy Sugar Cookies
I love this idea!!! I received it from LivingScriptures.com (an entertainment program we enjoy using as family).

Last Saturday night, GingerSnap and I attended The Ballet with a family friend who will have moved by the time we return to Costa Rica. We wanted to spend one last day together, but what to do with two teenage girls, on a Saturday night, that is worth leaving the comforts of our own homes… Read More The Ballet
We made it! We have been traveling all day today. Literally! We left Costa Rica at 1:30 p.m. and arrived at our destination at 1:30 a.m. (Costa Rica time). We’re exhausted! So we are going to sleep as long as we can “today”. Happy Monday/Tuesday,
Well, we did it! It wasn’t an easy week, but we made it!! I’m so happy that we even had this opportunity to homeschool again this year. It has been a wonderful year! Here’s a recap. . .

Sometimes we see the craziest things in life! Like this . . . We saw this group of cars near the airport. We thought that maybe they were parked there so that they could watch the airplanes land and take off. But we now think that they were parked on the hill so that freeway… Read More Sometimes . . .
