Our Discovery Trip to San Jose, Costa Rica was a success. We accomplished all of our goals and had a great time.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Tour of the Language Institute. We got to tour the school where Keeley and I and our two girls will be studying Spanish during our first year in Costa Rica. It is a well run facility, we are excited to begin our studies there. The classes for the girls will be really good too.
- It rained every day we were there. Costa Rica has two seasons, wet & dry. The wet season is from April to December, the dry season from January to March. The rain usually starts in the afternoon and continues on into the night. Temperatures were cooler than we thought they would be too.
- We had an awesome time getting to know missionaries Greg & Sue Kedrovsky and their three kids. They were very gracious hosts and it was enjoyable to talk about the ministry with them. Having lived in Costa Rica for ten years now, they have a lot of experience and wisdom that we can learn from.
- Our girls survived without us. We made it through the week without them, but it was really hard. This was our first time away from them for more than a day.
