How do you know rainy season is about to begin?

Momma Beck Visit!!

My sweet Momma came and visited us!  All the way from Wisconsin!  She had been to Costa Rica once before – in early 2012 she was with us on our due diligence trip, so she had been a part of our decision process from early on.  For her, it was great to visit us this time and see where we lived, friends we’ve made, and how we live our daily lives here.  She was constantly awed by the natural beauty of Costa Rica and inquisitive about everything – the plants, flowers, birds, trees, people and customs.  I must say, it is so fun to have someone who is so thrilled by her surroundings (future visitors, please keep this in mind!  We don’t take on unenthused or unappreciative people for boarders!).
