So, I'm realizing it has been so long since I've written that I haven't even mentioned we have another foreign exchange student living with us! This is important because she takes part in this kid conversation. Her name is Monica and she will be with us, attending the local high school, for the duration of the school year. She hails from Bolivia :)
Now to set the stage, we were having Family Home Evening - one of our more fun lessons. I read them the story of the Tower of Babel from the Old Testament Stories book while we ate dinner and then we made towers out of marshmallows and toothpicks - racing against the clock to see who could build the tallest one. Then we were joking about all speaking in a different language to make it feel more authentic.
The Frog: yeah, I can speak like, "si, si!"
Peach: Yeah!! And I can talk like Dora! "Hola!"
Monica: Ok, I'll speak Portuguese
Me: Ok, I'll speak in Hungarian, and Jay, you can speak Japanese
Hazel: I'll talk like a puppy!
