Día de la Familia

Last Saturday was family day at Sam’s school. The school had games set up, tons of inflatable moon bounces, food for sale and even an inflatable (pedal) go-cart track.

Sam quickly ran into friends, and I watched with pride as he switched to Spanish and played with his friends. This hasn’t been an easy journey for our kids. Their Spanish is still growing, and they are constantly aware that they aren’t Ticos. But I think back on that first day of school when they were nervous (and I was terrified) and I’m overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed by how courageous they were to step into a new culture, a new language, and a new school. How courageous they are every day. And now they have done it! They have made friends- in Spanish. I’m so grateful to the faithful God who has brought them here and sustained them every step of the way.
