Sebastian just got back from the pool, where he was playing ball with a 7 year old boy who lives in our apartment building. All our kids have been pretty timid about playing with kids here, feeling like they don't want to initiate or respond because of the language. Sebastian saw this boy swimming, and asked if he could go down, and asked me to go with him. I am really proud of him, and we talked about it afterward. It doesn't take much to make a friend. And the fun thing is that this new buddy invited him to come over to play video games and play sometime!
Just made manioc fries (Mandioca Frita). Very yummy. Pretty time intensive, but good.
