My house has a new sound, it's giggles. Giggles as they read phrases from the dictionary, giggles as they try to teach Jeshua Russian, giggles as they run through the house playing hide and seek. It is amazing to me how well they fit in! I am thrilled. Last night we took them to a birthday party, they picked right up on the games. There were lots of relay games and they would be the 3 or 4 to go and have it figured out by then. Olga will try anaything (so far) and really tries with the English, Katerina will try if coaxed, Kristina not so much. Two examples green beans and pizza. Olga tried it, was OK with it and ate two pieces, Kate (pronounced KatEa) would eat the crust but not the pizza part, Kristina wouldn't try it (but loved the cheetos). I made green beans one night, Olga ate 1, Kate put it to her mouth, Kristina wouldn't touch it. But they love cucumbers and 2 minute noodles so we are good. And they ate the mashed potatoes and steak that went with the green beans.
