Speechless

The other day I received a card in the mail from my niece, Eilish.

The cover:

The letter:

The word for word translation based on my lower-intermediate knowledge of child-language:

To Joseph, I know you are in Turkey ’cause no you. I miss in you I. Love Eilish

The reply:

Dear Eilish,

thank you very much for the card.

I miss you, too.

Yes, I am in Turkey.

One day I will return to Australia and then we will see each other again.

Love Joe
