Yes it is the rainy season so we have been lying low on purpose. It's not all bad news - in reality it only rains for a short period at a time (so far!) and you can generally see the clouds gathering so you know when it is time to duck for cover.
We are settling into life - visiting with friends, doing the grocery shopping, homeschooling, visiting the local parks - and it has been nice for the kids to help them get adjusted to their new environment.
We are in need of a little day trip however just to whet our appetites so we just might look to do a trip to Pisac for a coffee at the Blue Llama towards the end of the month.
We have been out and about socialising of late after meeting some lovely people at the The Meeting Place in San Blas. If you haven't been there I recommend it as the staff are very helpful and friendly and the food is delicious. So this Friday, Little Miss 8 is very happy to announce that she is having a sleepover and is counting down the days.
And Matt and I have been sneaking out for quiet coffees without the kids - yes you heard me right - without the kids. So far we have done it twice and it has been oh so enjoyable. We have been struggling to find some quiet time and while he has had a break in the routine, we managed to snatch some time here and there.
We have now connected to the world of technology through our satellite television so the kids are now enjoying watching tv in both spanish and english. We just need to get the internet connected and we are good to go!
We are possibly on the lookout for another apartment as we have had an invitation to share a large house with someone but whether that will happen - we will just wait and see.
Otherwise we are just hanging out, doing a bit of homeschool and waiting to see what the days will bring. At the moment a bit of rain but we can generally work around it.
Matt has a break in his teaching schedule (they get two days off each month) so it should be back to work tomorrow as normal once he gets his new timetable.
