While walking around Spain seeing the sights, our kids are encouraged to talk to random people they meet on the street. As part of their homeschool (a very small part) they are learning spanish.
It seems like in each country we visit the kids have a phrase they like to ask people, and here in Spain, they are asking people if they can pet their dogs.
Isaac has no problem asking random strangers random things in a language he doesn't really know. He really will ask anyone, anything without much fear.
Isabelle on the other hand, is quite shy when the time comes! So funny to us, since she is so boisterous and spunky normally. She will practice over and over what to say in Spanish and then BEG us to let her go ask the stranger if she can pet their doggie, and then chicken out at the last minute.
However, today Belle had two victories, where she marched up and slowly and clearly asked two people if she could pet their dogs. When she was all finished, her face was triumphant and our whole family celebrated her little victory.
