Traveling to Costa Rica

Getting here has been kind of crazy, but it’s really good to be here now!!! The week before we left Leslie got sick with a really bad sinus infection, and Jude got sick and had to go to the doctor two times (This ended up being a huge blessing because his doctor is a Christian and prayed for us and also gave us lots of medicines to take with us). The packing process was really slowed down because of this. The night before our flight the next morning we stayed up until 3 a.m. packing and then woke up at 4 a.m. to drive to L.A. to catch our flight! We were like zombies!

Everything went really well with the flight, except for one mishap in the Dallas airport changing planes. We accidently went to the gate for a flight to San Jose California, not San Jose Costa Rica. We actually checked in and started to board before the flight attendant pointed out our mistake! We had five minutes to run to the other side of the terminal and get on the plane heading to San Jose, Costa Rica. Luckily we made it. Our luggage included 9 gigantic suitcases, two strollers, four carseats, a guitar and a surfboard! We were so blessed with favor from the Lord at the airport that we didn’t even have to pay for our overweight luggage which saved us about $200!

We arrived at night and Spencer and Giaccomo were there to meet us with a van. We loaded all our luggage in and drove to our furnished home that was waiting for us. It was kind of scary driving in at night, not being able to really see our surroundings. To get into the house we went through two locked gates and then our locked front door. It felt a little eerie with the tiredness and at night. We got the kids settled in bed and fell asleep ourselves.
