I didn't go to school today because it's the end of the year and the kids are writing lots of exams in the mornings. However, I did meet Adriana (the dairy farmer's wife) at 9:30 am until 11:30 am to practice my Spanish and help her with English. We have yet to plan anything formal... we simply end up chatting about this and that. Adriana is full of information that gives perspective on the dynamics of our neightbourhood. It's always interesting and time goes by so fast. Then, I spent the rest of the afternoon preparing for my class this evening. I picked Nacho, Paola and Adriana up and drove to Copey. It was a good class. I was happy with the flow. My earlier preparation definitely helped me stay on track. I have a whole new appreciation for teachers now. Two and a half hours is a long time to be standing up in front of the class. I think I will suggest that we cut it back to two hours. It feels like everyone is petering out in that last half hour... including me!

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
