Counting in Arabic


Pau is talking so much now he can almost keep up with me.

When dinner was over and it was time to clean up he said, "Cleaned chair last night." It's true, he did clean his chair last night. Then he paused for a moment, thinking, and said, "Cleaned chair yesterday."

We were all very impressed.

Trains, Stations, Magnets

We spent the afternoon building train stations. Pau populated his with Lego people and then said, "Abu Dhabi Station."
 I discovered the combination of magnets and trains.
Pau puts a person on his "tunnel."

Today was the first day that  Pau wore underpants to school, and he didn't have any accidents. Wow, what a big boy! When Mama came to pick us up, Pau's teacher said with a big smile, "He is wearing the same clothes he was wearing this morning!" We are so proud!
