Clowning around at bedtime
Things have been pretty routine around here lately. Which has been kind of nice. We did have some family fun yesterday though. Our deaf mentor, Brett, brought along some cards to play with as part of our sign lesson. He taught us about the word have and how it's used to indicate possession in ASL.
Then to emphasize the lesson we got to play "Go Fish" with our voices turned off. Whitney and I played as a team against Brett and Melanie. We asked, "Do you have a blue egg?" all in sign and got to tell people, "Go fish" when we didn't have the card they asked us for.
Whit and I played pretty hard. She enjoyed holding the cards and helping get matches. Brett won the game, but he may have had a bit of an advantage. ;-) Whitney and I came in second.
We're going to keep working on sign language by having certain times where we turn our voices off so we can practice. Liam is getting into the act lately too. He knows a lot of food and animal signs which will make it easier for him to communicate with Whitney.
