Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🍀 As far as I know I’m 0% Irish but I’ll never pass up a chance to add some whimsy to our day— green smoothies & spinach muffins here we come! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. It was a fun little activity to have my kids help me find books in every color of the 🌈 + pot of gold (y luego los leímos todos ahí sentadas en la banqueta 😏). Les paso el tip!
Colors My skin is kind of sort of brownish Pinkish yellowish white. My eyes are greyish blueish green, But I’m told they look orange in the night. My hair is reddish blondish brown, But it’s silver when it’s wet. And all the colors I am inside Have not been invented yet. - Shel Silverstein ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 10 points if you recognize this classic children’s book (con traducción al español!) ☺️ Take us out, Friday!
“Mami, ya se me acabó el vuelo!” Writing a piece for the newsletter on some easy strategies to stay consistent in speaking Spanish con los niños.

¡Bienvenido viernesitoooo! Heading into the weekend like ✌🏼 (and how beautiful is @dariluna_ mural?!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ¡Que tengan maravilloso fin de semana!
