06 Oct: Japanese Phrase of the Day! Let’s look it up.

Is there something in particular your kids are obsessed with right now? My boys are totally all about geology. They love searching for cool rocks and learning about mining! I love it when they get super excited about it and ask a question.
Teaching my kids how to find answers to their questions is more important than knowing the answer, so being able to say, “Let’s look it up,” in a foreign language is icing on the educational cake! And if they eat mostly icing, I’m okay with that. 😉

19 Aug: Japanese Phrase of the Day! I’m excited. (for a male) / (for a female)

What’s the first thing a kid says on the morning of his or her birthday? “I’m excited!” Right?! For our kids’ birthdays, we skip the parties and presents and go on a fun trip together. (We did a big themed birthday for Darian when he was one, and I didn’t love doing it, so that was the last party. 😂) Last year for Nolan’s birthday, we did the Bahamas. For Darian and I, we went to San Diego. And for Hector, we were in Mexico on the beach! And this year… hahaha! We were going to be in France, Germany, Romania, and Italy across all our birthdays. Now we’re grounded. 😭 But we’ll still have fun! What do you do to make birthdays special in your house? What should we do this year now that our plans are cancelled? Any tips? Alllllll our birthdays are coming up.
