Today is our last full day in Atlanta. I have been totally depressed about having to go back to Japan for the last couple of days now. I guess this is the biggest drawback of taking long vacations; it’s always difficult returning back to reality.
Haruka has made a lot of improvements in her English skills in just the last week alone. She’s got a bigger English vocabulary now, and she actually makes an effort to speak it as well. Lately, she’s been showing off her new found skills to other children and making new friends. The other day, we went to the park where a bunch of kids were playing in the fountain. Haruka, who loves playing in water, joined the kids and nearly instantaneously mad some new friends. The kids quickly figured out that English wasn’t Haruka’s first language but somehow still was able to communicate with her. So for most of the morning, Haru played with the kids and had a really good time.
