**Before I begin this post from the past, I have sprinkled throughout it some pictures of us from that year. They don’t have anything to do with this post, but I thought it would be fun to share them. Enjoy! ** Nothing sounded good for breakfast this morning but my stomach was growling. Cereal and… Read More #TBT – October 30, 2014 – “Learning to like Oatmeal”
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
Ouch! I’m still feeling this kidney stone(s). I honestly thought it had cleared up, much like a UTI, but I guess it can take up to 2 weeks to pass one stone. 🤷🏻♀️ I wonder if I should get an ultrasound to help me see what I’m up against? I wonder if they even have… Read More Still Feeling It!
So, it happened again! Despite these great pills doing their thing, I had another Kidney Stone attack tonight. Although I am feeling concerned for my future health, I feel surrounded by loving support and a feeling of hope is with me. It helps that despite my health problems this weekend, my kids have had a… Read More Attack #2
So, things didn’t go how I hoped they would Thursday. This one had a rough night’s sleep, Wednesday night, because she finally got sick with the same bug we have all been fighting for 2 weeks (the last one bites the dust!). But we didn’t let that stop our plans. The kids and I have… Read More Visiting a Government-Run Emergency Room
Boy am I wiped out. After getting the smelly, stinky laundry started (got to love rainy season in Costa Rica – NOT! It makes my laundry REEK!) . . . and “quickly” sweeping and mopping the floor, because you know, it only takes a minute (wink, wink), we dashed out the door to run a… Read More #TBT – June 18, 2017 – “I love this Vlog”

Yesterday was a good day! We had a special visitor call us via Google Hang-out. It was totally unexpected, but hoped for. (https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/missionaries-family-communication) Elder Whitchurch said he could have had more email time, but he decided to call us instead. Thank you! And, yes please! We had a fun time asking him questions we have… Read More New Changes Coming Our Way!
THIS is what I love more than anything! When I look up at a beautiful, cloud-filled sky and see rays of light shoot from the clouds, allowing the sun to line the clouds with a silver lining. Ahhh! It makes my heart so happy!!! 🥰 Because moments like these make me immediately think of all… Read More My Favorite Sky
Today was a delightfully full day! As a family, we visited another ward in our Stake for their ward conference. This ward is called “Ojo de Agua” which means “Eye of the water”. Cool name, huh! After church, we dashed home to welcome some new guests for almuerzo (lunch); an adorable family of one of… Read More Ojo de Agua, Almuerzo, y una Charla
