Nima, our housekeeper, has 4 little boys and another baby on the way. She is a very nice person. She only speaks Spanish so I get very challenged when she comes. I so want to TALK with her. So I keep trying and hopefully over time I will get better. I plan to study and work on my Spanish while here - it is just slow going.
The best part is that Nima brings her 9 year old son Ricardo sometimes. It is great because the 3 boys can play. I took a 45 minute break from work (it has been very long work days this week) to take the boys to pool. The kids do not really talk yet. So I was thrilled when Oldest Son relayed to Ricardo in Spanish that we had 5 more minutes before time to go. Oldest Son has such a nice accent when he does speak Spanish. It is thrilling to see him acquire this wonderful language. The kids did play at the beach and then with their nerf guns back at Villa. Ricardo has a sunny disposition and I am really pleased the kids are making a friend from Mexico!
