There are many great Spanish words to be tagged L for this week’s Story Alphabet. Although many people claim that they know little Spanish, they will most likely know some of these words! Through the magic of technology, this post will sail out of the starting gate while I am en route to Guayaquil to meet my friend Barbara!
L is for lago/lake (Above) L is for leche (Below)
We were all amused when Nicolas dubbed the riverhouse, “Casa Loca.”
Most of you know the word for moon: Luna. Full moon is luna llena. Remember that the double l sounds like a Y.

Did you know that the llamas are cousins of the camels?
Another fun word in Spanish is llave. Oh my! Marie lost her “Yah-vees” in the sand! Or she almost lost her keys in the sand!
