Mi Becino!

Haning out with the next door neighbors.
They moved here from Columbia six months ago on politicall asilum. He was a helicopter piolet for the airforce there. They've been married for 25 years and have a 17 year old and a 4 year old. Mario is the dad, Cloudia is the mom, Mario the 17 yr old and carlos the 4 year old. its fantastic having them next door. Althought there is a language barriere of sorts, they are helping me with spanish and I am helping them with their english. We have a lot of fun.
Cloudia was teaching me salsa last night and Isaac and Carlos are a perfect match. He just turned four but its just as coordinated as Isaac so they can keep up with each other. And Carlos doesn't let Isaac boss him around. Also because they are so equal Isaac doesn't have the worshipping sindrome he has witht he other boy who lives by us. I counldn't ask for a better best friend for Isaac. And as you can see they are into the same things!

Sydney unfortunetly gets let out a lot but we're working on finding her firneds too. But she plays with Sadie and sits and pratices her spanish also. She remembers stuff better then I do.
