Today’s language lesson included describing Mr. Bean.;) First we took turns describing what we saw then she described it in her own words. It’s good to break up these 3 hour lessons with some humor!
About a month ago, our LH wanted to give me a different atmosphere to practice Turkish so she invited me over to her friend’s home for their daily neighborhood coffee/tea time. After we met, her friends asked if maybe they could come to our home and so Esma asked me if she could invite her friends over to our home this morning for Türk kahveşi (coffee). I’ve heard so much about her close friends so it was cool to have them and their kids visit us. At first they were quite shy but seeing them begin to relax and laugh in our home was a joy to experience.
Today we celebrated two years of friendship and one and half years of language lessons with Esma. Her family has become dearer and dearer to us over the past two years and we’ve come along way since pointing at objects and barely putting our sentences together. We’ve often wondered why learning language is such a slow process but it is in the slow but steady growth that our relationships are growing deeper.️
My one and only sweet girl turned 7 this weekend So thankful for this thoughtful, energetic and goofy little girl who loves to draw, read and dance. We had a fun weekend celebrating her with cupcakes at school, a breakfast date, a movie with the girls, henna, and a little party with close friends. It was a fun Eden kind of birthday
