It's been another busy week in Costa Rica! Wednesday we went down South to meet with the designer regarding our property and home ideas. Felt good about the meeting but are still open to possibly buying if we can find the right place. Got caught in a downpour that washed out a dirt road we were taking home so we had to turn around and go home the highway. Then we got stuck behind a fatal accident at dusk with a semi and looked to be a motorcyclist. The motorcycle accidents here are atrocious. We sat in the car sitting for an hour waiting for the police to let us pass. Thursday. Celebrated Kraig's 16th birthday with his request, sushi and The Ghost Rider 2 in 3D. We came home and had cake and ice cream and then Kraig crashed before 9 pm. Friday while Kraig stayed home, the three of us went into San Jose to get our documents to the translator for our residency and then took Kasie to see Hunger Games. She was so excited to be able to see it here on the same day it premiered in the States. We made our first attempt to open a bank account now that our corporation is all set up but we were warned it can take three tries. Monday we will try again and hope we will succeed. We can not buy a car until we have this done first. Saturday, we attended a pool party in Escazu at the home of a lovely family we met at Stake conference last week. There were several American families there and the best part for me has been meeting the most amazing people. They are fascinating to talk with as most of them have lived all over the world. The worse thing this week - we really want our shipping container and it could be another 3 weeks before it arrives. YIKES!
