As we were sitting on our veranda yesterday, 9 year old Chloe told me, "your family is a new family at GSF. Your family is a clear family."

"What do you mean, Chloe? Our family has been here for two years." I asked a little confused.

"Well, your family is a new clear family. You know, with a mom and dad and kids--you have three kids, a boy and two girls."

I was still quite confused but other kids came up and the conversation was lost. That evening, still bewildered by what Chloe meant, I told Mark that she called us a "new clear family."

Caralina, who many times has to be my translator, gently said, "Mom, I think she meant a nuclear family!"
