quick glimpse

I can't tell you how much I'm loving Brazil.  I'm shocked.  If I give you a quick glimpse at my day maybe you'll understand.

Wake up, get Isaac and Stella off to school, get an unexpected but always welcome visit from a friend, get dressed, go to the kid's school, gather a few friends for an impromptu lunch at my house, said lunch cooked by Zeli (Zeli, is enough to make my life awesome.  She's our maid/nanny/cook/portuguese teacher/personal assistant.), group grocery shopping experience, pick up kids from school, play at playground after school, meet some new friends, come home to a clean home, enjoy playing with my kids because I don't have to clean/cook, do a load of laundry (just because I can- our washer was delivered today), help kids with homework, play hide and go seek in our empty house with tons of closets for perfect hiding spots, have a dance party, cook dinner, eat together, email Drew to thank him for bringing us to Brazil, now I'm off to get my kids to bed.

I don't know why or how but I feel so comfortable here.  I'm loving every minute of it.  That doesn't mean I don't miss all my friends and family.  So still plan on coming to visit!!  Then you can enjoy my good life.

You are seriously the best. I think you could love life anywhere! I'm so glad you can play with your kids and that you have no chores to do. Awesome!
