Music to my ears
Last night I was cooking up some chicken vegetable soup. Dan was off at his running group in Viña. The kids were entertaining themselves with a school yard game called "bolitas". Essentially its marbles or some form of the game. Grace and Theo both play it during recess at school and of course they learned to play here in Chile - in Spanish.
So as I chopped vegetables, I just basked in the sound of the kids bantering back and forth in beautiful Spanish. "Vamos a jugar menti." "No, verdi". "¡Chita!" "No, esto no fue." and so on.
It was lovely! Music to my ears.
