Our Bilingual Family May Get Bigger — We’re Looking Into Adoption

Posted by: | 7 Comments

I have news to share: My husband and I have finally decided that we’re ready to become foster parents with the goal to adopt. It’s been beautiful and practical to be a family of three, but for months now I’ve been feeling the longing and even the readiness to welcome a new being into our familia. However, we’re still grounded in reality and know our limitations as far as the economic and time pressures we have. I just turned 40Read More ...

Now that we’re in full swing with our new life as parents of a kindergartener, we’re readjusting many of our daily routines — or lack of them, in some cases — to better accommodate the new needs of our girl.

We’re in our second week of school and I still haven’t brought myself to give my daughter the allowance I had thought I would be giving her as soon as she became a kindergartener.

Our First Day of Kinder Spanish Dual Immersion

Posted by: | 19 Comments

The day we’d been awaiting for finally came: first day of school at Franklin Language Academy’s dual immersion Spanish class. Camila, my husband and I had been getting all the essentials like the backpack, lunchbox, name tags and such ready, but we had also been gently reminding the girl that this school would be different than her Montessori preschool because it was all in Spanish. I even took her with me on a trip to Cancun last week where sheRead More ...
