A Suspicion Confirmed

One of our next-door neighbors is American! I have the windows open today because it's such a beautiful day and heard all of this clunking coming from the porch area that's walled off from ours. And I heard two women's voices, both distinctly American. In fact, one sounded like she was from the South and the other sounded Midwestern. So I finally screwed up my courage to investigate and popped out on the porch and asked "Are you American?" Turns out they are, and the neighbor's husband is German and in fact owns one of the businesses in our building (their other partner in the business lives here too). And am I good or what--one of the women (a visiting cousin) is from Florida while the neighbor is from Ohio. They also have a baby who looks a little younger than Seana (probably 18 months) and Kevin has seen them in the hallway. In fact, last night he heard the neighbor talking to her son about Scout in English so we strongly suspected that they were Americans. They're assembling a playhouse for the little boy, so that explains all the noise.
