#belikefrida Hispanic Heritage Month

#belikefrida

This year, at my school, we are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month in style. Our slogan (catchphrase) for the month, which we are celebrating during all of October, is “Be Like Frida”.  To be honest, at first, the kids had NO CLUE what we were talking about and they just made fun of Frida for being […]

July’s Book Club Book: “The Light Between Oceans”

"The Light Between Oceans"

So, did everyone finish reading “The Light Between Oceans” and have a little time to recover? All I have to say is that our August book (“The Secret Keeper”) better be happier! I knew I was done for as soon as I met the main characters, Izzy (really!??) and Tom.  However, despite the UBER depressing […]

A double perspective on the world…

This past weekend, we were able to celebrate the wedding of my “cousin” with family on my husband’s Cuban side. The entire event was amazing; we were able to spend such good, quality time with people who we don’t always get to see as often as we’d like. Everything was so much fun…babies everywhere, kids […]

I <3 “Pleasantville”, NJ

20130623-191849.jpg

  Two weekends ago, my entire family on my mom’s side spent our last weekend together in “pleasantville” aka Hackettstown, NJ. Situated in an antiquated little town and surrounded by lakes and the “Mucklands”, Hackettstown has been and always will be my (and my Brothers’s) version of absolute perfection. Here’s why… My grandparents, who were […]

We are trying our hardest to raise a little bilingual Spanish-English person in our house. As a person who didn’t learn Spanish until the age of 13 and who now teaches high school Spanish, I know what a challenge it can be to acquire language at a later stage in life.  That being said, my […]
