Labor Day

We had a Labor Day picnic this week. We wondered if it would be too much for Abenezer...In some ways it was but he really enjoys playing with the other kids..so we decided to see. He did really good and enjoyed the pool (can't swim at all but tries really hard) He fell in once and Dad had to jump in and get him (Dad's phone is now halfway dead)....

The things that we noticed that was hard was the language barrier ....people think because he knows a few words that he understands alot. He doesn't, he will even nod yes sometimes when he has no clue. Just think about how you may know some spanish words and understand a word but if a native spanish speaking person would come up to you and start talking, you may be able to pick a word or two out, but that's it. Now, imagine if you are four and in a new country and all these people and kids are talking to you in another language?

It confirmed to me that small groups with us is best for now.....it's just too confusing for him....
