A trip to the market

We have a variety of places to shop for groceries here in San Jose.

We shop mostly at a grocery store near our house, because of the proximity to our house.  There is an open fruit and vegetable market on the weekends, and when we get a chance we like to get our fresh fruits and veggies for the week there at the "feria".

We don't generally shop at the central marketplace for our meats but I had to share some pictures

just keep swimming

Not ready to cook with feet yet

Or hearts
ok, or tongue either

I have to admit, I have not gone totally native with all of the food, we stick to what we know, we have added more beans and rice to our diet, and have added many new fruits, many of which we don't even know how to pronounce correctly. . . remember we are new missionaries :)

If this was my full time job

If this was my full time job, I would obviously be hungry and homeless.

I don't know how my time evaporates, but here it is March, and I realize I haven't posted anything this year.  Good grief, how does that happen?

I have some strong examples of how this happens, for example, I tried in January to put a post of pictures from each month of the 2012.  I had sketchy to little internet for a few days, then I forgot.

Then I tried to post some from Emma's bd in Feb, then I realized, that I had deleted her bd pictures, after at least an hour of searching them for them, by that time I had forgotten all about the blog, and was mourning the loss of the pictures. ;(

And finally today, in my efforts to multitask, I had the blog ready to publish, and went to to check an email, and alas, loss the entire thing.

So there it is friends.
My confession

But Life is good.  I have to admit, that learning Spanish is literally our full time job, leaving very little energy (mental or physical) for anything else.  including this blog.

I feel like I need to wait for something "great" to blog about, but people say, that want to know how we are doing, and some of the things we are seeing. . . so I need to do better. . .

So lets start  back with "simple"

Emma's 9th birthay, Feb 4th

Maggi's 12 birthday

2 of the prettiest things in Costa Rica

I will be working on trying to be more intentional on updating our friends and families as we learn to become what God wants us to be here in Costa Rica.

Ps I may even to put some older post that never got published on here, so if the timing doesn't make sense. . . .there is a plan!

We love you guys!
