Laura also has a bit of a dramatic flair! She definitely keeps us entertained! She is a good girl. Like most 8 year olds, she has a tendency to whine when she doesn't get her way, or wants to get her way or is tattling on her brother or sister. Laura and we have a running joke now...when she starts to talk in her whiney voice we say "We can't understand you Laura - but if you talk in a normal voice we can!' She thinks this is funny, but also takes it to heart and will take a deep breath and attempt to say whatever she was trying to say in a 'voz normal' (normal voice).
Laura is doing well in school - today we learned the parts of the body in English - and I introduced them to the heads-shoulders-knees and toes song. They thought Mami was pretty funny singing away!
Laura is also an active little girl. Today we played chase forever...with a twist - we had to throw the Nerf football at someone to make them 'it'. Yesterday Laura played baseball for quite a while too (and she's got a good arm!) and each time she got to run the bases, the bases were in a different spot...she's very creative...made it a bit difficult for the outfield though!
Here are a few pictures of Laura from today... we have a ton of video (may need some editing), but the connections to upload here are a little unreliable...we'll get one posted at some point though!
Juancho & Laura at 'school' (we spend about an hour each day doing school - mostly focused on learning English)
Laura & Angie playing outside - it has been sunny & warm the past 3 days, which is uncharacteristic for the 'springtime' in Bogota - we've loved it!
In a post about Laura I had to add this pic...It is a pic Laura took after she was my hairdresser (don't you LOVE my 'do?) and posed me with a few 'peluches' (Spanish for 'stuffed animals'). She is quite the budding photographer!
