One Step must start each Journey

On the 20th we landed in Quito on a beautiful Sunday morning, we had had a long transition period and were happy to join Tito at last. I wish I had my camera handy when you first saw your Dad at the airport. You dropped your bag and sprinted to his arms with this huge grin on your face.

Quito has spectacular mountains and it is fairly cool and dry. The valley were we live, has terrific weather and the plants are just so grateful for it, they can help but be beautiful.

Our neighborhood is very pretty, but no one is ever outside, a stark contrast with Casa del Sol in Santa Ana :(   Still, you have adapted quite well to the move and even though it gets chilly at night, when its sunny, its warm enough for water fun.

Brand new kiddie pool in the backyard.


We enrolled you in school as soon as we could, simply because the single thing you missed the most were your friends, who you constantly asked about.

Your first day of school at Playtime

This is what you looked like when I picked you up that first day. Needless to say, you were happy to be in the company of people your same height.

You still ask if you can take Renata, when she comes to visit, to your new school; but have also been quick to make new friends.

In the back of the bus with Emilia, on your way to a field trip, to re enforce the farm module at Playtime.

Petting and feeding the animals

On the "Tarabita" which is like a single line canopy ride.

All in all, a pretty good first week. Today, I am grateful for new beginnings and for having you and your Dad along for this one.

    Prima! I've been waiting for an update. So glad to see a smile on Julis' face :) Post photos of the house - I would love to see it. The yard looks like it is the size of a football field!
