feliz día de los niños!

Children's Day is celebrated throughout Latin America. We honor and celebrate childhood and the joy and hope children bring to our lives. Today we're having a picnic (maybe on our covered porch because it's supposed to storm) and a special cake and ice cream. Probably some games, too.

latin america sounds very family oriented (love learning about all the celebrations there). gotta love that little bottom poking out too!

i was going to ask, if g goes to the middle school what language would she be taking? would it be spanish?

I think G would take German. She'd probably be pretty bored in Spanish. :-) Just this morning we were talking about how important it will be for her to keep up her reading in Spanish. We don't want her to lose it. I wonder how I could get her to write in Spanish, too?

I remember when I was little, we used to always try to convince Mum and Dad that if there was a Mother's Day and a Father's Day, it's only fair that there's a Children's Day. They always said that every day was children's day. WHAT ABOUT THE DAYS WE HAD TO CLEAN THE HOUSE?! OR THE DAYS WE GOT IN TROUBLE, HUH?! WHAT ABOUT THOSE DAYS?!

It took me the longest time to figure out what G was hugging! LOL! Fun photos of younger days ...
