School today. The teacher read a story to the class and I didn't understand a single word. And I thought I was doing so well. The kids were laughing and seemed to be enjoying it. Looks like I missed out. I did however help my new amigo, Kevin, with his spelling, so that made me feel a little better (back in Canada, my son Jude has a friend named Kevin and we used to always call him Little Kevin to differentiate from my husband, Kevin. Well, I think I will do the same here, I will call my classmate Little Kevin from now on). Then when I came home, I noticed Martin had planted 3 banana-type trees along the pathway to the guest house. These will grow to be quite tall within the first year. They've been strategically placed to provide our guests a little more privacy. We also spoke with Clara and asked her to plant a beautiful vine, which grows orange flowers, up the side of the carport. These flowers attract hummingbirds, we've discovered, so we thought it would be a nice spot to add some colour and entice the hummingbirds to come visit at the same time.

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.
