Thatīs what really helps.If you describe, what you do understand - I can
figure out whether I wrote it in the correct form.

Know what? Tonight my son - Johannes sat next to me - he looked at my
Dolphin (2) sign which I like much more - and signed it -
I was amazed. He signed exactly what I had written - but it is wrong. His
right hand moves up and down and up and down but is wrist doesnīt bent up
or down .
No way that canīt be dolphin as I would like to sign it - at first fingers
up handforward and the down fingers down hand forward - you know what I`m
talking about? Just the way a dolphin jumps out of the wather and head
first into the water -

So my in the beginning estimated simple task turns out to become more and
more complicated!

Thanks for attention and help
