Home Sweet Blue-Home

Our long driveway.  The dog isn't ours!!
Rosita, our neighbor's dog, likes to come over and rest on our
porch while his owner is at work.  
We have arrived to our new home in Costa Rica.  Renting a home without ever physically seeing the home was a leap of faith but we have been pleasantly surprised!  Upon arrival Reese pointed out that our house is "Cookie Monster Blue!" We have barbed wire, multiple locks and doors, a long driveway and cement walls.  Our Blue-House is like nothing we've ever lived in before.

Despite their exhaustion from an overnight flight from Denver to San Jose, the girls scurried around the house excitedly opening cabinets and doors.  The top and bottom bunks were quickly chosen and stuffed animals tossed onto pillows.  We got lessons in hot water heaters, bug-management, lock do's and don'ts and more.  We located the breaker.  All the important things.

Now we've lived here for a couple weeks and it's beginning to feel like home.  Both Georgia and Reese were missing having a pet so we sprung for a couple parakeets that we can give away at the end of our year here in Costa Rica.  This was a fun trip!  We rode by taxi to a recommended veterinarian's office to purchase a pet.  After choosing the birds, the cage, the food we hailed a taxi (think Nissan Sentra) and climbed into the taxi bird cage and all.  Those birds had the ride of their life!! Our taxi driver was the craziest driver we've had yet! Knight and Angel are now peacefully living in the corner of our living room and sing to us as we study.
