I’ve met my inner-child solemate…..
Posted May 26, 2012on:
Maricela and Louis live in the first house inside the electric gate to our development. They are considered “the gate keepers”.
They have 2 daughters that live with them….Dylanna, age 11, and Nazareth, age 7. Dylanna is as quiet as Nazareth is outgoing. Two complete opposites. There son, age 15, has chosen to stay in the former house that Maricela and Louis lived in….first house next to our development. Altho’ I’ve noticed, he’s been coming around our development more and more.
This morning as I was sitting at the embroidery machine, the dogs were raising a ruckus and I could vaguely hear my name being called over all the commotion.
Nazareth had come to show me her “hula outfit” and in our broken Spanglish, I figured out it was something for her school class! She loves dressing up and coming to the gate to show me!!!
A little while later, there was another commotion and Nazareth is yelling “Nancy, Nancy”….I peaked out the bedroom window, grabbed my phone, because there was another Kodak (guess I can’t use that word much longer) moment in the making! This time I was greeted with this outfit!
This was an Indian outfit that Maricela, her mother, wore when she was in elementary school!
I love that Nazareth loves to dress up! I love that she comes to the gate and wants to show me! She and I get along so well…..I think I should look for some formal attire for her at Ropa American (Costa Rica’s version of Goodwill) and cut it down so it will fit her! Wouldn’t that be a hoot?
Life is great! Pura Vida!
