While lying in my hospital bed, at 2:15 a.m. this morning, I felt prompted to send a message to Ashtyn and tell her that her example has been helping me face and see through my health issues this week. But what I found in my private messages to her, touched me profoundly. I had already… Read More #TBT – October 29, 2016 – “A Facebook Message to Ashtyn’s Army”
I had a good day yesterday! The blessing of being too sick to swim is that you get to see how far your children have progressed. Way to go Joy Boy and Curly Cook! I’m super proud of you! “Pecho! Pecho! Libre! Patada! . . . Darcy!” 🤣 Happy Friday,
Monday morning, Paul landed before I even woke up. His single propellor flight to San Isidro was only 30 minutes and left at 6:00 am. Paul loved the flight and was happy as a clam to tour the property with the kids and hear a lot about our time spent at Alice’s Danish get-away. But… Read More The Reason We Visited Alice

We had a fun time asking him questions we have… Read More New Changes Coming Our Way!

As I was waiting for Curly Cook to finish up her Literature/Art/Geography/Grammar lesson . . . I enjoyed the late afternoon sunset from… Read More And Life Goes On

This is Jorge! He’s our swimming teacher. He comes to our home, every Thursday, to give us our swimming lesson. He kicks our fannies, but we love him for it! He’s a really great teacher! Thanks Jorge! Happy Thursday,
Paul was spontaneous this month and planned a “field trip” for us and our friends, Fran and Sarah. We left on a Friday afternoon and stopped half-way in La Fortuna for the night. We had a yummy dinner, with gelato for dessert, then stayed overnight in one of the many hotels that Paul’s new company… Read More Cocoa and Cows . . .
I was sitting on the couch, listening to Joy Boy read out loud to me, when I looked over and saw my unfinished Mount Olympus staring at me. I have had a goal to complete all four seasons of my favorite Mt. Olympus for over two years, but I have yet to complete this goal.… Read More Learning to Paint and Draw
