Mayken: Skyping with grandma last night had to be cancelled due to technological problems - I needed to talk my mom through a Skype update and her phone battery died. :-( Sept 25, 2017 20:45:42 GMT 9
Joanna: sorry Mayken...this is sad but funny as I'm sure many skype Grandparents have the same woes !(mine..) For us this weekend: potty training has led to great quality time reading and chatting, and some pretty hilarious ml questions Sept 26, 2017 6:20:44 GMT 9
Adam Beck: Mayken and Joanna, I can relate! My mother (Grandma) can't seem to get the sound on her computer working so when we Skype, we also have to use the telephone! :P Sept 26, 2017 6:36:03 GMT 9

Joanna: Planning a long Christmas minority language visit, so exciting! Sept 30, 2017 14:46:01 GMT 9 *
Mayken: Yay! Skype is working again on my mom's tablet, meaning we can skype with ml grandma again! Oct 2, 2017 23:12:24 GMT 9
Mayken: The other day my mom (monolingual ml) called while my daughter and I were out, so Daddy (monolingual ML) answered. My mom was amazed to find out he isn't monolingual ML any more after all, and praised his active ml ability. Oct 3, 2017 23:28:39 GMT 9
Joanna: For each day my daughter is exposed to other people speaking English (here in France) I put a little star on the calendar...trying to fill it up! :) Oct 8, 2017 3:52:17 GMT 9 *

Marisa: My daughter won't say number one in Spanish or English, but in German! She loves recognizing the number and saying it out loud... it sounds more like the word 'ice' in English, though, but it's 'eins.' Number 9, however, is 'nueve'. So funny! Oct 11, 2017 10:33:45 GMT 9
Wojtek: I've just received Evan's Moore skill sharpeners for my girl on pre-k level. I have to say it is so cool, my daughter loves it. She can cut, glue, color (www.evan-moor.com/p/19783/evan-moor-skill-sharpeners-trio-prek) Oct 11, 2017 18:30:27 GMT 9 *
