Well it was just another working day for us today. I put another coat of paint on the guest house kitchen cabinets and put the first coast on the back door, as well. And I worked in the garden a little. Kevin worked on the water wheel pump most of the whole day. Then I went to the second English Summer Camp. Today was harder. Yulian (pronounced Julian) who is only 4 and Sharon's brother Thomas who is 5 both had a tough time. Yulian was sad and just wanted to go home from about the minute he got to the centre. I tried, we all tried to cheer him up, but I think he was tired. His eyes were very sleepy. And Thomas was brooding the whole time, too. He got a new bike for Christmas and all he wanted to do was go ride it. Perfectly natural. And Tamara wasn't a whole lot better. She wasn't acting up or anything, she just refused to participate. Oh well, Nicol, Sharon and Kevin seemed to have a great time... and I asked them if they wanted to come back next week and they all were jumping up and down and said yes. So, we'll see how next week goes. Even if it's only three kids, that's fine as long as they're having fun.

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.
