Hi everyone! The weather here has been so beautiful! I am kind of jealous with all of you with older kids and all that fun stuff y'all do. Okay, back to enjoying my sweet cuddly little tykes! Dh has the afternoon off today so I am looking forward to spending time together as a family. DS2 is finally crawling everywhere! He'd been figuring it out all week, and he is finally just cruising everywhere! Thisd is new as of, I think, yesterday. Last night he was so pleased with himself he was just laughing, crowing, giggling, bouncing on his bum, he was just ecstatic. He is 6 months old and he has been so frustrated for so long, wanting to keep up with big brother, and now he can! (Mostly.) He is also starting to pull himself up on things, and this is a little scary because he still falls down too often! DS1 hasn't been doing much, just toddler stuff I guess. He's working on learning to use the toilet. I don't like saying potty-training, because I'm not training him.
I can hardly wait until we get that second car and then I can actually take them out to interesting places.
One question. I want to learn Spanish. What are some good programs for adults? I was using the free Coffee Break Spanish program (free podcasts, they are available through iTunes and other places) but I am getting a little fed up with it. I feel like I haven't learned much for my time. I like to scoot through these things! (
As a child I went through one years worth of Latin in like a week or two!) I feel the need for something a little bit more tactile and booky. I learn things well when I am writing and copying and I'd like to learn the spelling and grammar too. (Coffee Break Spanish has some printables online but I don't have a printer and I think you have to pay for them anyway.) A good textbook-type thing with CDs would be fine with me. I'll probably combine programs though, and I like supplementing with Spanish books and a Spanish dictionary to do some translating on my own. So I'd love to hear what works for you or for your older kids. I'd like to get to be fluent in Spanish.
