|Biking in Granada|
Since our last blog it has been a bit tumultuous. My beloved Papa, Dave Iman, died of a heart attack. When Jenn and I heard the news we quickly made the decision for me to fly back to Oregon to be with my Grammy and family. Time stood still while the family was together, and it has been hard for our family. His celebration of life service will be held on July 30th; at the same time in which Jenn and I were already planning on being in the States. So, time quickly marches on to when we will be leaving once more. Jenn spent that time with the Baits in Costa Rica wishing for me to be back in her arms.

I’m making progress with my Spanish speaking, but while we were on Ometepe, I meant to tell a lady that I had already paid and instead told her that I had already hit her coworker. “Oh, don’t worry, I already punched her!!” I didn’t realize what I’d said until Jenn bust up laughing once we were out of earshot.
Jenn had a number of firsts;:first time ever jumping off a rope swing, first time zip-lining, and her first time sleeping under a mosquito net!

Arriving back at our home in Cahuita after almost two weeks was interesting. An uninhabited house in the Jungle doesn’t stay uninhabited. We were welcomed home by tons of resident spiders, frogs, and a HUGE grasshopper! Jenn was less than thrilled and many a loud scream could have been heard had anyone been around. So, I engaged in creature battles for a decent while. But, we are now back and roasting at our home in Cahuita recovering from some sour stomachs (we paid the price for the excellent street food) and finding plenty of ways to stay busy around here until school starts back up.
Thank you for checking up on what we’ve been up to.
