Thankfully, we had Ed. Our neighbor. Well, we don't really know who he is, but if we really needed internet we could take our computer into the laundry room, where we are closest to our next door neighbors, and borrow Ed's unsecured connection. At one point during the week, Joe goes, "Ed is the most reliable guy I know here in Costa Rica." True.
So now that we finally have a regular connection, here are some recent pictures of our life down here, in no particular order.

|A terrific rain storm last week. I took a video because it was so loud, but it wouldn't load :(|
|Kate's first day of school. She no longer is smiling when we drop her off however, and tells us, "I don't like school." Hopefully she'll come around.|
|The view from where we take Spanish classes: in the new church building/office spaces. The dirt below is where the church will be - they still need a huge roof but are trying to come up with funding.|
|Kate looking out her window to the back patio.|
|We are taking care of Jason and Kerby's dog (another couple working down here), Jackson. People think he's very "bravo" (mean/aggressive), but he's the sweetest thing ever.|
|Down the hill and to the left is our house.|
|One of those weird, almond-shaped bugs - I think it's a moth trying to die?? I extracted about 142 of them from the wood paneling and walls one night. GROSS!|
