Readers of this blog know that one of our favorite rituals is Marin saying the pre meal blessing in her native Amharic.
She suddenly switched to English on us.
Last week Marin sat down, asked us to all hold hands, and then started naming people. Us, her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and her teachers at day care. Then Emmy will usually jump in with a few names Marin forgot.
Colleen is all excited that the girls are thinking about people and naming them. I am too, but I am also bummed that one more vestige of their Ahmaric is disappearing.
