It's Ali's Birthday

Mommy here! Today is Alison's 7th birthday -- the second birthday she's celebrated abroad! She woke up to balloons and calls to Europe to talk to Nana & Pop Pop. Alison used to be really small, seven years is a long time to be growing. Don't believe me? Here she is on each of her birthdays:

Seven Years of Alison!

Happy Birthday Alison!

¡Felíz Cumpleaños Alison!

A great, new friend

This is me with my friend Huguette. She is 8-years-old and lives at the hotel too. She goes to school during the day, but we play every afternoon and all weekend together. She likes books too! We're sharing books with each other. Huguette is part Nicaraguan and part German and she speaks English, Spanish and a little German. She's helping me learn Spanish.

Live from Nicaragua

Guess what I've been doing all this time? If you'd like to know, I going to tell you right now.

I moved to Managua, Nicaragua three weeks ago.

We're staying at a hotel called Hotel Ticomo. It has a place that's awesome to play ball.

We've been to lots of places, but we've not seen a volcano, cave or anywhere that vampire bats may live. But I did see one fly over the hotel.

More next time.

Love, Alison
