The Many Ways Ballet Nurtures My Daughter

Posted by: | 3 Comments

It’s been almost three years since my now 5-year-old girl took her first ballet class. Every single Sunday morning we leave the house in a mad dash to make it on time to my girl’s ballet class.

So last week during my girl’s spring break, her and I headed down to ElRead More ...

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Out of all the Latino cultural traditions we embrace and celebrate in our Mexican/Salvadorean/North American home, the one my girl now looks forward to the most is the making of cascarones for Easter.
