Our 1st Full Day


We began our day by taking the bus to St. Gregory's School. The kids were very excited about going to school. We took a tour and met the children's teachers. The teachers were very kind and welcoming-we were very impressed by the school! Then we went grocery shopping at Hypermas- a store a lot like Meijers, only every thing was in Spanish, kilograms and colons (Costa Rican dollars). In the afternoon we hiked up the mountain that our house is on. All in all it was a good day!

Hi Friends!
Sounds like a rough and challenging trip there, but we thank God for your safety in the journey. We hope that Ethan's bag has arrived by now too. We look forward to hearing more about school. Glad to hear the kids are excited to start. We hope that you have had a chance to catch up on your rest. We are thinking of you and praying for you.
Love, the Reinsmas
