I was reading an email from my niece in Belgium.
Me – Kaatje asks how you’re going?
Ella – Good.
Me – Is that all you want to say to her?
Ella – “Ik hou van jou.”
Me – Do you want to write it yourself? You can write it in English.
Ella – Why can I write it in English?
Me – Because Kaatje understands English now. She’s learning it at school.
Ella – Does she know ‘I love you’?
Me – I think she does.
Ella – Because school told her that the first day she went there, because it’s so important to know that word.
