Today was Lilia’s graduation ceremony. She had to give a little speech, and this is what she signed (as translated by me):
“In kindergarten, the funnest thing was ‘The Mitten’ play during the Culture Festival. I was the dog. I said ‘bow wow wow’ in a loud voice. Everyone praised me so I was happy.
“When I grow up I want to work in a clothing store. I want to sell pretty clothes.
“Thank you teacher and mama. When I become a first grader, I will do my best.
Sadly, her father didn’t understand her signing, but we were both very proud of her.
