We are moving to Spain!  In particular we are moving to Buitrago del Loyoza.  It is a town of 2,000 located 40 miles north of Madrid.  The town is surrounded by a river and castle walls that date back to the 11th century.  The town is also home to a castle from the 15th century and a small Picasso museum; thanks to the barber who used to cut Picasso’s hair and was paid in drawings.  All three girls will be attending the local Spanish school – Penalta.  And no, it is not a bilingual school so they will be immersed in Spanish.  Their school day will go from 9:30am – 1pm, break for lunch & siesta and then resume from 3pm – 4:30pm.  Homeschooling is illegal in Spain and we just decided go big or go home!  I’m sure they will be translating on my behalf in no time at all.  Jeff will be teaching at Colegio Gredos San Diego.  Although, what exactly is not quite clear.  Which leaves me.  I guess I will be learning how to cook Spanish cuisine??
