Birthday Fun

One thing I thing is so cool about living overseas is the international community our kids are exposed to. Represented tonight at Olivia's birthday party are the U.K., Spain, The Netherlands, Begium and Scotland. These girls are all amazing. 12 and 13 years old and they all speak a minimum of 2 languages, some speak 3 and 4. Olivia was lamenting to me a few weeks ago that she didn't sign up for Spanish. She feels like she's so far behind because she's only fluent in two languages! Maybe by the time she turns 13, she'll be on her way to mastering language #3!
Happy Birthday, Bonne Anniversaire, Feliz Cumpleanos, Hartelijk gefeliciteerd and Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!

Even though my girls are in a French public school, they've somehow found some international friends...Chili, Thai, English, Madagascar, Dutch, German etc...I love the mix :)
