Out of This World Experience
Today was the first day of Elizabeth's "winter" break. She'll be out of school until August 12th when she heads back to start third grade. To celebrate the day we headed to a new park about a mile from our home. Peruvian children are still in school and so the park was nearly empty. After a few minutes of family play time a little five-year old boy came up to chat. He was quite interested in our family and had lots of questions. "Do you speak two languages? Why did you come to Peru? Do your girls go to school?" His questions came one right after the other. When he found out we were from the United States he was especially excited, and said: "Really! I've never met someone from another planet!"
