Today was the last day of school before the summer vacation. Everyone passed their exams and can advance into the next grade in February. We had a party for the kids and I took some pictures. Taking class pictures is not customary here in Costa Rica. Once the pictures were taken, Adriana, Cindy and I printed them out and pasted them into individual picture frames to give to the kids at the end of the day. There was quite a little production line going. Each frame consisted of a single head shot, a class picture and some words that said "Rio Blanco - Class of 2012", and then we added colourful stickers on the frames. They were so happy! Unfortunately, Daniela was unable to make it so she's not in any of the pictures.

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.
