I’m getting myself ready to travel with my daughter, Camila, to El Salvador where we will spend one whole month with la familia.  It will be such an amazing full-immersion experience for her right now at the age of three.  I will have many stories to share from there and I’m planning on keeping you all up-to-date on all the language and cultural experiences (hope not shocks!) that she’ll be going through.

Posted by: | No Comments

I really thought my daughter was too young to watch this Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel movie, and she probably really is.  However, we received a screening copy of the movie to review exactly on a day I was getting tired of the princess movies she favors these days.
