Day 57: School jitters

School here starts on Monday, and tonight before bed poor little Nina was feeling nervous about going. She's afraid she doesn't speak enough German and afraid that she won't be able to talk to the other kids or understand what they're saying.

I tried to reassure her, telling her that she's learned a lot of German, and will keep learning even more when she's in school.

The Maggie chimed in on the pep talk.

"That's right Nina," she encouraged. "You'll keep on learning more and more German until you're 100, then you'll die."

Thanks for the perspective Maggie! Nothing like mortality to put it all in perspective. Sweet dreams!

Fortunately, Nina cracked up. "That Maggie!" she said.

Never a dull moment around here I tell you...
