We Have Arrived!!!
Doug and I (Laurie) departed Florida this morning to fly down to Costa Rica. It's been a long 24 hours for us working on just a little sleep we got on the plane his morning after pulling an all nighter last night. We are currently at the car rental company where they gave us a tiny compact car (because that is what we ordered), but it was even smaller than we thought and impossible to fit our 8 pieces of luggage into if we actually wanted to fit in there too!! So, Doug is exchanging it for a smaller SUV type vehicle while I watch our luggage. Once we are out of here we will be checking into a small local hotel where we can crash for the day and make up for lost sleep! We are so grateful to have made the decision to come a few days early before the team arrives from Texas. Over the next couple days we will be picking up food for the week, driving our luggage out to the church and of course resting and eating some amazing Costa Rican food!!!!
