Recently, we were treated to a "play date" at Magnolia's classmate, Leonore's house. The girls had a blast playing in their huge playroom and making their very own pizzas in a real oven. Brian and I enjoyed talking with Leonore's mom Isabelle, a long time Beijing resident (she's been here 12 years!). We were also treated to a more adult meal and delicious wine. Brian got to practice his French a little as that is their family's first language. We were shocked to learn that Leonore's only been speaking English since this summer. She and Kaleia are kindred spirits, of a terrible kind. Cute, full of energy, and an appetite for mischief that takes full advantage of their cuteness.
