week #4

January 28, 2012 - Azogues, Ecuador

 I thought Spanish was supposed to be easier than French! Ha!  It is still a big challenge, but we ARE making progress.   Our teacher, Maricela, makes learning a pleasure -- and she could not be more patient. She will wait forever while we struggle to translate thoughts into words.  We really like her and feel like we scored.   The girls really like their teacher too -- Bertha.  She's fun -- and knows all of Cuenca's best ice cream spots.

Wow... nice fruit! It's so great to catch up with your goings-on and be able to visualize where you are. The house is gorgeous! And I'm so glad those chocolates came in handy. Traveling for 40-some-odd hours has to have its perks! We miss you but are so happy to know that you're soaking up la vida Latina. Hope you soak up some Spanish, too! Buena suerte con las lecciones, y no se olviden su Ingles. Les echemos de menos. Con carino, Sharon and the gang.

Yeah! I found you all! Uncle Josh said that you had some blog on some fuzzy site, maybe fuzzy peach, he couldn't remember. A bit of sleuthing, and ta da!

Happy Birthday sweet Allie! (Hey- -did you guys try to call us yesterday? There was mostly static, and then a voice very, very far away, but we all agreed it might have been Jen)

We love you!

Yes, we do have other school work. I (Liz) have to do an online math course, a real drag and also do an independent study for Civics. Allie and Seb are both working on math sheets everyday and Allie is reading books for school.
