After our lesson, he insisted on making a train out of the alphabet. We made it out of empty toilet paper rolls (boy did I have plenty stashed away!)

Thoughts, and anecdotes:
I am truly amazed of how much he's advanced with his Spanish. He's putting sentences together, and pointing at everything and saying it in Spanish. We were at a Mexican restaurant having dinner, and he started saying, "Plato rojo, plato azul, plato amarillo, tenedor, cuchara y cuchillo." He was so proud!
At one point, I asked the waiter for a spoon in Spanish. Little one's reaction was, "Mommy, they know Spanish, too!" I said, "Yes, they do!" He questions, "Mommy, but don't they speak Mexican?" LOL Too sweet!
His confusion was because we had been to a Chinese restaurant for lunch, and he heard the waiters talking to each other. He asks, "Mommy, what are they speaking? It's not Spanish!" I told him, "No, it's Chinese." Can you see the correlation Chinese restaurant employees speak Chinese, Mexican restaurant employees should speak Mexican! Hahaha! I told him, that Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans as well as other Latin American countries speak Spanish, too.
We continue going to his weekly Spanish immersion classes, and I've purchased quite a few books in both English/Spanish; and musical CD's (can't wait to share them with you in a future post!)
