A day full of Zulu . . . for all of us!
Today our friend Micheal came to do some work at our house and brought his 5 year old daughter, Sam (for short), to play. The first couple minutes were interesting . . . Sam doesn't speak any English. I interpreted for a bit and then left them on their own to "figure out" a way to play together. Dolls break down all language barriers with little girls and soon they were playing side by side. AND, soon I started hearing Abby using the Zulu phrases she knows! This was exciting for me to listen to and I was so proud of her for trying.
It was also great practice for me and fun being able to help her play with the girls.
