Denis and her daughters, Stephanie and Miranda, were lovely. Denis is a very loving mother and is very proud of her beautiful girls. Ruben was absent from the affair because he was working late.
Miranda is Denis's younger daughter. At 3 years of age, she is lovely and quite verbal. When we began discussing our task of learning Spanish, Mick said that his goal is to speak as well as a 5 year old after living in Cuenca for 5 years. After being with Miranda, he has changed that idea to the Spanish of a 3 year old.
This is the whole group, minus one.
Stephanie is especially sweet, she gave me her special sea shell as a gift.
We finished the meal with fried ice cream.
Some of us are especially enjoying the treat.
Miranda seemed to have enjoyed the evening, she wore it well!
It was a fun evening. We truly appreciated Denis allowing us into the family circle. Denis's parents are good people with strong values; they have instilled this integrity into Denis. Denis and Ruben are raising their children with those same values. Denis is a genuinely caring and hard working young woman that is striving for the best for her family. She faces everyday with a courage that many of us lack. Our lives have truly been enriched by knowing Denis. We will greatly miss the continuous presence of Denis in our home, but we're just an e-mail away. Denis you and your family are always welcome in Cuenca!
