Much to my surprise, despite not being particularly known for beautiful handwriting in English, and despite writing in Russian exclusively in rather wobbly capitals until very recently, Dragonfly (aged 9) is now suddenly writing pretty impressive 'propisnye bukvy' (joined up writing) in her Russian club notebook, even managing the required slant for most of the letters. Wow! I didn't expect that! I wonder whether it will impact on her handwriting generally (if she keeps it up) - you can often recognise Russian people's handwriting by this characteristic slanting pattern.
