Now that we're back in Honduras that means that Brother and I are home A LOT of the time. This requires me to try and be a little creative in finding things to do. We don't have a house full of toys or books and going outside is not really the best option (heat, bugs). Brother is old enough to start playing games. What toddler doesn't like the memory game? Here is the picture of my homemade game. I glued two pieces of white stock paper together. Drew some simple images then colored them with some color crayons. Brother and I have played lots of games now and he's starting to get better at taking turns and understanding that his turn is over even if he didn't find the match. I love seeing his face of excitement when he finds a match. His expression is wonderful and makes me feel happy.
Starting next week, Brother's and my schedule is going to change and will offer more opportunities for Brother to learn and play. He is starting pre-school during the hours that I am going to be taking Spanish classes.
It should be interesting to see how things go the first few days. He's not been in daycare or away from a parent or family member in a long time. The pre-school is also supposed to be the first introduction to English for most of the kids, but we are going to ask them to also work on Spanish with him.
