Help Your Expat Kids Thrive!


Thinking about moving overseas with kids? Your children can thrive in new & unfamiliar surroundings. Mine did. 

I wrote this book in response to questions from parents. Its hero is my youngest son William, who faced the hurdles of blending & growing in rural Central America with bravery, tenacity & style.

When we arrived in 2008, my son was only half way through the 3rd grade. Today, he has successfully finished 10th, & he moves easily between the two cultures & languages he embraces.

It wasn't a cakewalk. Not by a long shot.
But, was it worth it?
Yes. Yes. Yes. And you can do it too!

Read the first few chapters, FREE. You do not need a Kindle for these.

News About The Boys

Mrs. Bliss told us there is a caterpillar here that is pink and fuzzy, and, if you touch it, its fur will stick in your skin and sting you! This happened to her daughter, Aylana. It was very painful and they had to pull the fibers out using tape! There are also scorpions and snakes, but I think there are more poisonous snakes in Florida.

William is busy, busy. In the morning he does his home schooling (Dad is his teacher!). Then, around 9:00 he rushes happily off to the local, Catholic, Spanish-only school where he audits the 4th grade! He's been doing some skim boarding but we are seriously missing the skating. Surfing looms in the near future. For a change we finally have kids on our street to play with, (not to mention dogs and roosters, snakes, toads, etc.) and it is wonderful making new friends. Still, William really misses his friends and family back in Sarasota. It's wonderful to get messages from the folks back home.

We send a special "Hello How Are Ya?" back to Nolen, Max, Connor, Emily W. and Teah!

Larry is Mr. Handy! Between homeschooling and making repairs on the house, he is never without something to do. And we have gone from never seeing him, to having him around all the time. Hmmmmmm.....
