Pics from our trip & housing update

26 Aug

Now that I have our first few posts up, I wanted to do one post showcasing some of our pics from our week-long trip to DR in July.  For those following our project (you can read more about that here) I wanted to give you all an update on our housing situation.  We’ve spent the last few weeks since we’ve been back discussing our options, and Taty (Renzo’s mom)  has been looking at rental properties and has been sending us photos.  Finally, after much debate, discussion, and all sorts of hoohah, we have come to a decision that feels right.  We are going to live with Taty in her apartment, and fix up Papa’s house enough to use as a workshop/studio.  Papa’s house is only a 5 minute drive from Taty’s apartment so it’s like having the best of both worlds.  Most of all I am excited to live with Taty, not just because she is always up for an adventure, is a great cook, and is a super-sweet mother-in-law, but because it is going to be exponentially easier for me to learn Spanish with she and Renzo talking each other’s ears off all the time.  If it were just Renzo and me it would be a lot more challenging, and much easier to slip into the ease of speaking Ingles.  So there’s our update.  We can’t wait to get to DR next month so we can get started on our project.

In the meantime here are some pics as promised:
