At the playground, you know

After a month of trying to get him to reach out to other kids in Spanish, it finally happened. This evening after an excellent trip to the Military history Museum we stopped by the playground. As usual there were several children playing on the crazy spiderweb like structure. I don't know if it was the great time we just had, the warm night air or the increased sessions of Rosetta Stone, but Shmeep finally felt confident enough to strike up a conversation with not one but two boys. He introduced himself and tried to have a conversation. It was very rudimentary " you want climb" is fun?" " this is my brother" but the point is he tried. Which lead to his brothers giving it a shot too. Tonight was great and ended as every night out with boys does, in me breaking up a wrestling match gone south :)
