Hi! I’m happy to have more time with my 4-year-old daughter lately...on early maternity leave and she’s on school holidays from now to the end of the month. What kind of things have you done during holidays where you don’t travel for exposure?
We have Saturday-Tuesday all day together for two weeks, and from 4pm every day. One easy thing is having more time and patience to get the ml homework routine in!

It's brilliant that your bilingual journey is going so well as it sets the bilingual path for your forthcoming little bundle of joy.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you have a garden and live in/close to nature, so I would suggest outdoor activities such as gardening or nature observation. At The Multilingual Home, Adrienne (a multilingual mum) is doing insect observation: themultilingualhome.com/spring-mini-unit-ants
With the nice weather slowly coming in (though still very chilly), it's an opportunity to take your lil one out to make the most of it to plant strawberries or herbs (sorry, I'm rubbish at gardening so I'll let you pick what's adequate for the season) and observe ladybirds or why not birds...
What's on your mind right now? Just type and hit "Enter" to share it here!
Amy: @sheilac, I suggest you create an actual thread on the "Questions & Concerns" board, so fellow Zoo Keepers can help you with your concerns. 256 characters is too little to discuss something that is so important to your heart

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Adam Beck: Great to hear this, Mayken! And happy birthday to both yours and mine! (They have the same birthday, don't they?) And if anyone missed that post, here's the link once more...

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.

Adam Beck: Sounds like a wonderful trip, Mayken! Safe travels home!
