“Homeschool”

We just wrapped up a unit on the Water Cycle. Living in Mexico and having clean water truly limited sparked an interest in water for my girls. We did some fun little experiments and (hopefully!) learned lots!

My friends planned a fun little field trip for the kids. We toured a local pizza shop, Pizza Rita. The kids helped make a couple pizzas, mix dough and they got to see how it all works. They were all really happy and engaged! It was cute. And then just after 10 in the morning, the kids all ate pizza and drank sodas! It was a dream come true.

This was a fun two-step art project. First we covered a piece of cardstock completely with crayon. Then we painted over it with india ink mixed with a bit of dish soap. After that dried, we scratched our designs with nails. 

To celebrate the end of 2 weeks of learning Spanish, we picked up some ice cream on the way home from a shop that Greta wanted to go to. We bought overpriced (200 pesos for 4!), but delicious ice cream and enjoyed our sunny walk home. Holly looked so colorful with her piñata, green ice cream, purple sunglasses and blue dress, I had to take a picture! Ice cream immediately before lunch or dinner... when you're in Mexico, yes!

On Friday, we completed our two weeks of Spanish lessons. I go back and forth between feeling great because I've made progress and feeling completely deflated because how on earth am I going to master this language full of so many words?! I love Spanish and I want to speak it well! With time and work, I'll get there. Conor and I really enjoyed being in the same class and I adored our teacher Eliel. We had so many laughs with him. He was great! 

The girls loved their classes as well. Each week they had a third student in their classes, both were 8 year old girls. I'm not sure how much new Spanish they learned, however they love Spanish! The last day of school, Holly and Greta decorated piñatas their teacher had made. The piñatas turned out so cute! I absolutely adore them!
