Costa Rica

There is so much to say about our trip and time spent there that I wanted to share my "favorites"...

* William's first plane ride and him putting his hands in the air and saying "Wow this is fun" as we took off

* Seeing Jake, Dodie, and Hannah at the airport

* the local travel accomodations and traffic

* the blue, aqua water so clear that you can see for miles

* the cool breeze as we layed out on the beach

* breakfast and lunch with the 'monos' or monkeys

* being in a rainforest

* special bonding time with family

Our time spent there will forever be in our minds and hearts...

the 100 club

Several weeks ago as I approached William's classroom where he spends Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, there was a big board outside the door. The board read " Congratulations to our 100 club members!" Below was the name of 8 boys and William's name was one of them. He proudly presented me with his sheet of numbers from 1-100. He very enthusiastically told me that he had done it all my himself...with no help...and everything was correct. The order in which they go. The way the were written. Perfect! I was so proud of him and what he had accomplished.
