We received a bundle of clothes for the girls from a dear cousin.  As we were going through the bag, my daughter said, “Look, Malambo pants!”.   I stopped and thought, “What is she talking about?”  She was talking about this yellow pants that are very loose on the legs and that look a bit as a skirt.

World cup is ending and here is a present for you

A few weeks ago I presented an activity book to parctice Spanish while following the World Cup.  This book was designed for elementary school children.

I hope you enjoy it.
