Yeah! Grandma Jackie arrived!
Dan's mom, Jackie, arrived yesterday for a much anticipated visited. Being the intrepid traveler and Spanish speaker that she is, Jackie spent the day in Santiago upon arrival and made her way to us yesterday! We are all very excited and not just because she brought lots of treats (new running shoes, fleeces, and books of poetry!).
Last night we got to take her to one of our favorite restaurants, a Belgium placed named Via Via, and ran into our friends Becky, Keith, Jules and Stefan. They are a family from New York who are in their last months of their year long sabbatical in Valparaiso. Luckily, we often run into each other. Good food and lots of laughter marked our first night with Jackie.
We're looking forward to lots more good times during her visit. And we have lots of plans. We'll keep you posted.
