Remember a couple of Sundays ago I ran into that woman I had met 13 years ago? We got together yesterday at her house and our 7 children played very nicely together. I have some pictures from our lovely afternoon…

After we left, I decided to call Beth because she lives on my way home from there. We met for dinner at a Mexican restaurant close by her house. The seating host started speaking to the girls in Spanish (still not sure why- do I look Spanish? Maybe I look Hawaiian… sorry, Jackie Mason reference) and they just answered right back. They had several little conversations. Dave would have been so proud! I was sorry he missed it – although he thinks his absence is the reason they did so well. They are a little ornery when it comes to speaking to him in Spanish. However, his dogged determination to make our children bilingual is undoubtedly paying off. I’m so proud of him. Here is a cute picture of Soren and Miriam from the restaurant.
Then we all went back to Beth’s house and the kids had more fun playing with the Howard kids and watching videos while Beth and I chatted.
And today, it’s back to work on my new office! Still haven’t unpacked everything. Hi ho, hi ho.
