Today, my mom came home I was so excited when she came in. She helps me with a lot of things and I like to snuggle with her.
Today is Easter week and a lot of stores are closed. I think it is because they are having a big Easter party. There is a lot of interesting things going on in Santa Maria. All about church stuff. There was a thing down town and lots and lots of people were there.
ave the whole week of of working. Including my teacher. No School this week. I like that, except I don't get to see my friends unless we make a day for playing at each others houses.
The weather has been really warm. Not too hot, but definitely wearing shorts kind of weather.
The day we got home from the airport, the mail man came. He only comes when he has something to deliver. That's not very often. The don't have junk mail in Costa Rica. They don't even send bills in the mail, so when the mail comes it is usually a good thing. This time the mail was for me. My Grandma sent me a package with games and clothes.
I liked everything she sent. We played both games the very first day. They were super fun. I even won the fishing for words game.
Ive decided to tell you a Spanish word every blog. This blog the word is Principalmente. That means Mainly. Este plato chino contiene principalmente vegetales. That means this chinese food plate contains mostly vegetables.
I found an interesting bug this week. Its a moth, and it's dead but I got some good pictures. Some of them even make it look like it is smiling.
It rained yesterday. It hasn't rained for a few weeks. Sometimes we will wake up in the morning and the ground will be wet, but not a lot of rain.
I'm glad there is rain because our tomatoes are growing in the garden. They are turning red now . My Mom will be surprised because when she left they were only green . She has been in Oregon because our friend died. She says she has never been able to grow tomatoes so I think she will be very happy.
This is holy week in Costa Rica so there is no school. Holy week is the week before Easter. Easter is a very big holiday here too. In Costa Rica they don't have the Easter bunny. I don't think people die eggs here either.
That's probably because the eggs are brown and they would be hard to color over the top.
Our new chickens are laying eggs now . The pullet eggs started last week. We have so many eggs now my dad has been making lots of quiche. Usually my mom makes it, but my dad does good too.
Our cats are really crazy. They jump on the windows when they want inside . Sometimes its really freaky! Like when they have laser eyes.
We get to pick my mom up from the airport this week . I am very excited . I really miss her . We video chat almost every day. If you have hangouts I can video chat with you. One time I had three people. Me, my mom and my dad.
I know i showed this bug in another blog but this is a better picture of one, and its still interesting.
