(July 30, 2013) Nico went to Michaels’ Craft Camp this summer, his first activity without Maman and Papa. To add to the mix it was in English, which at that time he only understood, but did not speak. The second [...]

The other day we got a bunch of tomato soup and vegetable soup cans as they were on sale and we use them a lot, to make our vegetable soup rice for example. Nico normally helps me to get the grocery out of the bags, but once he got to the cans I [...]
He came up with this one on his own, I kept the tubs for paint mixing when I repaint furniture. He got the tubs, the blocks and we asked him if he could sort them by color. He did.
When that was done he wanted to stack them of course (he [...]
