Tami and I committed to starting our blog back up so that we can post pictures and keep some type of log of our adventures in Rio. I'm sure most people know (because of Facebook) that we are moving to Rio right after Christmas. I am traveling to Rio, Argentina and Bolivia this week. I will be able to spend time in Rio looking at places to live and checking out the local Walmart for Tami. She wants pictures of every aisle. Most people are really excited for all the local markets with fresh fruits and vegetables, breads, fish/meats, etc. Not Tami, she wants the comforts of Walmart. We have been told that about the only thing that is similar to the Walmart here and there is the name.
The boys are getting registered for school. They will be attending an American school in Rio. The entire population of the school is less than Elias' 8th grade class at his school. Did I mention that the school in Rio is K-12? It will nice to be in a smaller school atmosphere but have all the curricula of a much larger school.
Jude already knows exactly what Rio will be like. He has watched the movie and knows exactly what to expect. He still wants to know what language he is going to speak when he is talking to his friends. He will probably be the one who picks the language up the quickest.
We are currently going through the visa process and getting all of our paperwork completed so we can move. I am the most excited out of everyone. I can't wait to get down there. The boys are excited but they are a little bit nervous at the same time. Tami is all nervous and a little bit excited. We are going down during the summer and right before carnival so it should be an exciting couple of months.
I will post a few pictures of my last travels to Venezuela, Colombia, Equador and Peru once I find them.
