Today started with a facetime call with my sister and grandma. Me and my sister were so excited to see each other we jumped around in excitement for a bit and then said hi and then barely talked the rest of the conversation. That’s truly missing someone right there.
After breakfast our day started with another meeting. My mommy had a meeting with a guy from a bank here and I did my best to play nicely while they talked. I think I did an impeccable job. After that, we drove to Antigua and mommy’s friend (who knows all the great spots for kids) told mommy about this amazing place to take me; It has coffee for mommy, a playground for me and a nice spot to sit and work because that’s what mommy had to do. I made a friend with a boy who again only speaks Spanish but I talked to him in English as if he understood me. We played a game by making funny noises at each other and it was very funny, we laughed a lot. I guess that’s how I will need communicate until I learn Spanish!!
My mommy and Luis –my new best friend who takes us around and makes sure we get by without speaking much Spanish, are doing a presentation tomorrow
and they had to work on it. So they took me to this fun place so I could play and eat and let them work without demanding too much attention. We spent the morning there and it was great. We ate some lunch there too, I didn’t eat much because I don’t like to eat a lot when my mommy spends money on food.
After lunch, Luis had to run some errands so mommy and me stayed in Antigua to explore a bit. We went to this place called Central Park. Wanna know the real scam here? ITS NOT A PARK! THERE ARE NO SWINGS OR SLIDES! I was outraged, who named it that? There was a fountain so I took a picture with it with a sassy pose, but still I was not impressed with that fact there were no swings so we couldn’t stay too long.
We tried to find another fun place, but mommy kept getting us lost so we found some other fun places with some yummy drinks and snacks instead. I also found MANY places to dance around Antigua. This place is like my stage, I love it. I saw a marching band in the street and that’s pretty much the highlight of maybe my life, I have made sure to tell everyone about that when they ask what I did today. We also went into a store today that had peppa pig shoes! Im not even kidding I tried them on and everything and tried to leave the store with them, I was so in love. Mommy said I didn’t need more shoes but what does she know, has she seen her shoe closet? I put up a fight but ultimately lost because I have no money. It really sucked. Then after a while I decided I had walked too much and my legs were tired, so every opportunity I saw, I sat down. I didn’t really have concept of where I was sitting so mommy was not impressed with my choices of places to sit….like the middle of the sidewalk was suuuch a big deal or something?
Luis came back to pick us up and his car was acting funny. He went to take it into the shop and found out there was a part that needed to be fixed, and they cant believe we arrived safely without something happening. It is pretty awesome that God takes such good care of us and protects us when we don’t even know we need it.
We went back to where we are staying for some play time and facetiming family. I talked to daddy tonight and I loved that. I talked to my grandma great while I ate dinner.
Right before bed, mommy was going to let me watch a movie, it started to rain really hard and I started to get a bit scared. Then our power went out and I freaked out….I was terrified. Mommy found our lantern and I held my hands over my ears and cuddled into her until I finally fell asleep. This was not the highlight of my day that is forsure.
Tomorrow will be excited, we are visiting lots of people, even a little girl who is my age AND speaks English…I cannot tell you how excited I am!! Also mommy is doing 2 presentations that I will have to behave through….so wish me luck. I will write more tomorrow about how that goes!!
