We are settled. It feels nice to say that. 95% of the boxes are unpacked – the rest probably will just stay packed since it’s sentimental type stuff. The walls are all painted except for the laundry and 2 bathrooms. There are even pictures and decorations on the wall. It’s been fun to unpack everything and find things long forgotten.
As I was digging through boxes of my old books, I came across a sign language book for children. I have no idea why I had it, I’m guessing it was maybe for a Girl Scout project long, long ago. I set it on the coffee table and the kids and I have had a blast learning signs for all the animals over the past few days. So much fun, in fact, they started asking me how to sign animals that weren’t in the book. Naturally, that prompted a Google search and I found ASL Pro, a site with a video dictionary for the American Sign Language. Once I found the sign for “lion,” they then wanted to know a dozen other words. I think we could have signed all day long.
Now, Little Miss wants to visit the “state where people who speak this language live.” I told her people who speak sign language live all over. I can see it now, everywhere we go, she’ll be on the look out for people signing, and she’ll go ask them if they want to go see the lion at the zoo.
