Coy tilt of the head...
"Viens avec moi, little girl?"
Unfortunately the girl didn't follow, but Estelle didn't take it personally, and we're sure she will keep making friends for the rest of her life.
Speaking of bilingualism, Alice was called to an individual French assessment session at the elementary school she will start attending in September. Seems they needed to make sure her Anglo background wouldn't hold her back. Well, she of course aced the thing, replacing only her "il"s with "y"s, something all Quebecois children do anyhow. Alice will receive an hour a week of slang rehab, and she'll be right back on track with her native peers.
