Today was our first Rio Blanco English Summer Camp, which I'm organizing. Sharon, Nicole, Daniel, Kevin and Tamara all showed up... plus Sharon's little brother Thomas and Kevin's little brother Yulian (pronounced Julian). The first thing the kids decided they wanted to do was to create a poster to say 'thank you' for the large donation the school received to finish the kitchen. The finishing touches on the kitchen are almost complete and should be ready for when they return to school in February. Everyone is so thrilled. Since we didn't have any large paper to make a poster, the kids wrote one word on one piece of 8.5 x 11 paper and we taped them all together. We have to be resourceful around here, and we certainly don't let limitations slow us down :)

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.
