We are definitely making some progress in the language department.  This week I noticed a milestone for both of the girls where they were not fearful of using their spanish in public with strangers. 

H left a toy – a little white dog – in a restaurant.  She said “Hold on – I forgot my toy – perro blanco, right?” and ran back in to claim it! 

When we were at the zoo yesterday, we needed more napkins while devouring some very drippy ice cream.  I started to get them, when J emphatically blocked me and said “I’ll do it! I want to say ‘ Necesito mas servietas por favor’!”

I hope this is a really good sign for how adventurous they may be once school starts on Sept 1st.
