Thankfully kids have returned to school full time. They are seeing friends and our new au pair is great! Our summer au pair wasn’t the best at getting them to talk or engaging them. But the current one is amazing with them. They speak loads of French. My son is also speaking a lot of French after school with his buddies. He tends to have more friends that prefer speaking French. For some reason in my daughter's year they seem to be heavy on English speaking preference. But at least she spends a bit more time playing and speaking to our au pair in French. She currently loves playing Lego in French. They create all sorts of scenarios. I’m a little worried about getting my son to read in French. My daughter was a lot more natural at it.
Amy: Was stunned to hear eldest had an anglophone (ml) accent when she began to read in the ML this afternoon!! Didn't last more than a paragraph until her brain switched language, but chuffed mum here!!

Mayken: My daughter found the secret stash of ml books I'd bought at the closure sale of the ml book store two months ago and hidden away for later. Guess it's a good time for new books now, right?

Caro C.: My baby (16mo) perfectly knows what "hi5" means and readily shows her hand even when we are not showing our hand first. It feels like the first minor blossom of the bilingual seed.

Adam Beck: Nice, Caro! Give her a high-five from me! And I look forward to hearing about many more happy developments to come!
