Posted by: | No Comments

Not a lot going on this week, but here are a few interesting links you might have missed! The July Carnival is Here! from Non-Native Bilingualism  — I love the monthly blogging carnival on bilingualism because it introduces to so many other parents who, like us, are doing everything they can to raise bilingual (or multilingual) children.

Posted by: | 3 Comments

As some of you already know, I’ve been working as a staff writer at MamásLatinas since the beginning of February. One of the things I love the most about my job — besides being able to put my bilingual skills to the test every single day as I write in both English and Spanish — is that one of our missions is to empower and celebrate Latina moms everywhere.

My good friend Sisi — the mastermind behind our Spanish book club — has been hosting a Fourth of July parade for the kids for the past three years. I had never been able to take my kids because of work until this year… and I’m so happy we finally did. The kids had a blast decorating their bikes and wagons and when everyone was ready Sisi turned on the Sousa marches (that reminded me so much of my dad)Read More ...

Week in Links for #BilingualKids — June 29

Posted by: | No Comments

It’s obvious summer is in full swing because I’ve very little to share in this installment of Week in Links for #BilingualKids. Plus, honestly, I’ve been way too concerned with the wildfires consuming my state to be able to concentrate on anything else. Have you seen the images? They’re devastating.
