Last year I was too chicken to have a birthday party for the boys because I couldn't speak much of the language. One year later, my french is far from perfect but I felt up to the task of communicating with 5-7 year olds successfully. Since the boys' birthdays are close together, we decided to celebrate them together and get it all over with at once! It was quite a fun day, actually only two hours worth of birthday party but hours of getting ready! The boys loved having their friends over and it was nice to get to know the other kids in their class. They are a surprisingly nice bunch of kids! I have even more respect for their teachers after spending two hours with them though.
