Lauren is progressing well, our guide speaks with her and tells us she is very smart and is conversing at a level he believes is at least a 5 year old or older. We had him ask her if she is frustrated with us not understanding her and she told him no. Today, we started a little phase of her testing her limits, this is good as it lets us know she is starting to get comfortable with knowing she is staying with us. She is developing her English skills and repeats everything, it is also funny the way she adds an "a" to the end of some of the phrases such as: "Gooda Bye", "Momia", "Dadia", "Camera" (for Cameron), Hannah is the only name she gets (it already ends with an A sound) "All Dona" (all done), Pleesha (please), and so on.
Everyone seems to be finally getting healthy again as each of the children have battled sinus colds and low grade fevers throughout the last week.
Here are some photos of Lauren taken over the past week:
