We have been traveling for the past week and are leaving again on a trip to Puerto Rico in a day! We got home from Brownsville and South Padre Island, Texas on Monday and leave Thursday to Puerto Rico. We washed all of our clothes before we left South Padre so everything has stayed in the suit cases for the next trip!!!
As some of you know my husband is from Brownsville, Texas. Brownsville is at the South tip of Texas. There is a stop light to turn to his Mom's house. If you pass the stop light you are at the border of Mexico, Matamoros, Mexico. I am from Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is an Island next to Cuba. It is US territory. So these trips are to visit family. In Puerto Rico we will be spendng it with my father and one of my uncles and showing the kids the sights! I can't tell you how excited I am to be going home. I miss Puerto Rico so much and wish we could all live there. It has been four years since the last trip I made out there. I don't think I'll be able to sleep tomorrow night, which is not a bad thing since we have to get up at 3:30am since the flight is at 6am. Crazy hours but we save money traveling and we get there early. My Dad lives in the mountains and I don't like to take all of those curves at night.
Spanish for the kids in Brownsville did not go as well I thought it might go. Both their Grandma and Gradma's Sister (they live together) do not speak English. We stayed with them and half the time the kids did not know what they were talking about. (I guess 50% is better than 0%!...just trying to make myself feel better!) Bella would cover her ears when all of us spoke Spanish. I wonder what it will be like in Puerto Rico when EVERYONE will be speaking Spanish: fast, loud and many conversations at once :-) It should be interesting!!!
