Hi! I am writing a card to my homestay family and need a little help.... I would like to say...


Congratulations on having your daycare open for 30 years!!

I wish we were there to celebrate with you

I hope you are both doing well, miss you lots.

:)

I know how to say a few sentences like the ones above, but i would really appreciate an accurate translation. THANK YOU. ARIGATOU :)

The context would be under my own imagination (but tried to be in a common situation) and one possibility of the translation of your English could be:

> Congratulations on having your daycare open for 30 years!!

保育園(託児所・保育所・デイケア施設)の開所30周年おめでとうございます。

> I wish we were there to celebrate with you

われわれも伺って一緒にお祝いできないのが残念です。

> I hope you are both doing well, miss you lots.

あなた方がともに順調であるように願っています。またお会いしたいです。

Sorry to interrupt, but I just wanted to say...
Hi, shin1ro-san! I haven't seen you for a while. I'm glad to see you again!

rachxo

May I suggest a more descriptive title next time than "help" :p

More people that may be able to help will read it if they know what to expect!
