We are looking into some schools for Joseph, here he is eligible for kindergarten. So I need to get him ready for that, it means he would have school from 7am-12:30pm 5 days a week, he is not even 5 yet! He is a total homebody and struggled last year with 4 days a week. It's that or home school. But, man! THAT takes a patient person!! (which I am not! And I'm a total pushover!!) It would be a great opportunity for him to go to school here, he could potentially go to the British school and have Spanish as a second language. But I would have to be brave and drive him there!
I have been driving here! yesterday I even drove to the American school where I am taking my Spanish class. which I am so glad I decided to do! I love the teacher, she does a good job of teaching culture as well as language. She is from El Salvador so it helps me to hear her accent to get my "ear" for local Spanish which is a real challenge. This week we went on a field trip to the open market which was way fun! and I am glad to know some shopping/ bargaining phrases, as I need to be able to go to the store without Ben.
Someday this blog will be our memories of this adventure in our life so... Random picture time!
Me at the Market
This is my friend Minnie, from my Spanish class, She is from Taiwan working on her 3rd language!!
This is how they roll! I'm sure to them I look just as strange belting my kids in. Paranoid Gringa!
The fountain in our apartment complex the kids get excited when the water is actually on.
Joseph joined in this game of Spanish water UNO, his mother was not as brave.
I'll try anything once!
There is beauty all around! (look closely you can see the temple in the background)
