Here’s a quick update of what life has been like in Santa Oliva.
Both Joan and Sergi are back in school, yay! Not that I didn’t love spending the whole day with them, but I think they’re glad to be back with their friends and I’m glad to have a little more structure to the day now 🙂 However, these little monkeys have a pretty crazy school schedule from what I’m used to. They have school in the mornings from 9:00-12:30, then I pick them up for “La Comida”, lunch time. Then I take them back to school at 15:00. Yup, that’s right, they have a TWO AND A HALF HOUR lunch break, how crazy?! In the afternoon they have school from 15:00-16:30, and on some days they have extracurricular activities. Joan hasn’t started any yet, but Sergi has fútbol (soccer) and English classes.
Both kiddos are so fun to hang out with, and they have very different personalities. Joan is such a good teacher and really likes music. Sergi likes to cuddle and play with me at the park. They’re even speaking English more with me!
But the boys aren’t the only ones who is back to school, I am too! I have Spanish classes once or twice a week. I can have simple conversations with Cristina now and am able to translate with the kids better too. Slowly getting there!
Most used words this week: Escuchas por favor, ¿Qué haces?/What’re you doing?, & Adios chicos (for when I say we’re leaving and they don’t listen to me haha)
Loving my time here in Spain, each day I feel at home a little more. Headed to Barcelona this weekend, I’m excited to go explore!
Stay tuned for more,
