We have a new leave date...September 3. Mike is dealing with some nerve problems in his right arm and the Dr. wants a little longer to monitor it. We are glad for a few reasons. This will get us home at the beginning of March instead of February. No Quiero regresar en el invierno. (I don't want to return in the winter) We study Spanish every day for several hours. We are trying to speak some Spanish to each other every day. We speak for a solid hour every morning when we walk. I am not good at it but Mike is so I have an awesome tutor. He is working longer and harder than I am. It makes me depressed, sometimes, because I feel so hopeless. But it will come together eventually, I have faith.
I am looking forward to another month of summer here. (I can spend hours here in my Secret Garden with my notebook and ipad, studying, with an occasional glance at this) All my kids except Leif will be here this week for a family reunion I am having. In August I will be able to have a birthday party for Michael. Then we will be content to fly off to Spain. Hopefully the visa will be ready by then, which is the last good reason to wait another month.
