Now, Carl and I try and use the correct American-English with Joshua as we don't want him to go to school confused. So it's normal in our house to say cookies, truck, trash, etc. But one word neither Carl or I can get comfortable saying is 'sneakers', so Joshua's trainers have always been just that - his trainers.
When waterplay came to an end and it was time to change back into dry clothes, Joshua asks Miss Sharma for his trainers. She replies with a blank stare. He asks a little louder but Miss Sharma still doesn't understand what he's asking for. According to Miss Dj a full on tantrunm followed, and Miss Sharma called her in for help. Thankfully Miss Dj understood Joshua's English and was able to find his 'trainers' for him and help him get them on. Poor Miss Sharma she had a crash course in English yesterday - Joshua style! And I guess Carl and I will have to add a new word to our vocabulary too and get used to using the word 'sneakers'!

Today (day 7) Jessica Sprague introduces House of 3 who have provided free brushes, etc. I don't know why I was surprised to see it's a group of three made up from Heidi Swapp, Rhonna Farrer and Janet Hopkins. You can read about them here. Thier style is very beutiful and unique. I think you may see thier influence on some of my layouts shortly.
Have a happy Sunday.
Strawberries and potato chips always taste better sitting on the sand.
Thank you for looking!

It's funny, something magical seems to happen when little children get thier haircut and they seem to mature as if by the magic of the scissors...
It all happened too fast for me to think about my camera, but I will try and get an 'after' photo on her.
Happy Thursday everyone.
Lyn and Melvin arrive tonight and still so much to do, but at least the champagne is chilling in the fridge, that's the important thing, huh?
