Patrick at 5 years 6 months to 6 years 0 months (months 66-72)
Patrick has just started his second year of Kindergarten and is apparently very happy to be a "Schmetterling" ie butterfly and to be helping the younger kids (Räupli, caterpillars!) He is a happy, funny guy who mostly likes playing with his older brother. They are growing even more alike. His English is still dominated by his German, particularly word order etc. We now ride to Kindergarten together - I have a "followme" contraption so that his bike is securely attached to mine. He is very keen to learn his english letters and to start to read - I think I need to challenge him more. Favourite animals are snakes, scorpions, geckos!
Language examples - I need to go on the toilet - please go out of the way - Can I please say somthing? - That do I got - Eisbär have I to bring mit
