El Cohete - Week of the Rocket ship

Hi loves! Long time no blog.  Sorry about that, life just seems to be flying by, not much time to post. We have been plugging away on all sorts of stuff, most free nights recently have been spent traveling to the moon and working the hours of on-line education we just found out we had to take.  We are done almost done with the home study (only have to review it) and then will be one step closer to submitting our dossier. We really can't wait to get to that step. BUT until then we are keeping ourselves busy building rocket ships and traveling to outer space...
This is the box the H's drum set came in, it is a close call which is getting more use, the present or the box it came in.
I have been missing speaking and teaching Spanish and have found it hard to stay motivated to keep talking to H in Spanish.  I had to come up with some new ways to keep us both excited.  So, we start doing some (very relaxed) thematic units, the past few weeks have been "El Cohete", the Rocket ship.  It is a good reason for me to learn a few new vocabulary words and find new ways to engage H in some Spanish.





Here are a few of our favorite videos if you are interested in some Spanish Rocketship fun :)

We won't be worrying about space this weekend though because we have the best crew of visitors coming - Meg and Ellie and Tia and N!!! We are so excited.  It is going to be an absolute blast. YESSSSS!
