El Chavo A Childhood Classic and the Life Lessons He Taught Us

El Chavo is a timeless sitcom, and a classic in the homes of many Latin American families.

My sweet nephew also a big fan of el Chavo! 
I grew up watching El Chavo del Ocho (the original version) not the animated one.   Every afternoon we would all prop ourselves (including my Abuela) in front of the TV to watch el Chavo and his friends from la vecindad in their daily adventures, and mishaps.

Discovering Pakistan with Kids: The Story of Iqbal Masih and Malala Yousafzai

Taking a stroll through the library, I came across the book:  Malala, a Brave Girl from Pakistan/Iqbal, a Brave Boy from Pakistan: Two Stories of Bravery  by Jeanette Winter. (Aff. link)

What caught my attention was that the book was a two in one. Two stories in one book, you flip the book and you read about Iqbal's story, and flip it over again and you can read Malala's story.

Family, Traditions, and a First Communion Celebration

This past weekend little one celebrated his First Holy Communion.  The ceremony at church was beautiful and afterwards we celebrated with family and friends with a party.

A lot of planning went into this party. I wanted it to be special.  Especially since we didn't have a big celebration for our son's baptism.
