Everyone searched for eggs placed in all corners and filled their basket.
Our Honda Accord car got a new number plate. As you might have guessed, Its “RISHAB” 🙂 Registered in Louisiana.
Now Rishab keeps claiming that its his car and not his dad’s as his name is written on it.
Rishab learnt using laptop’s mousepad today with this game. In a few minutes he was good at making cakes as ordered.
Withought his knowledge, he has started to operate a laptop. Would love to see me checking what he wants on youtube on his own. I am sure that day would come very soon
Rishab attended our ex-neighbor Mr.Ron’s 78th birthday. Rishab use to look out of the window and talk to him all the time.
Rishab had good fun playing with all of them.
Rishab told us first lie of his life. He was playing with some thermocole and broke it in to pieces and made a mess. I asked him who made this mess angrily.
He says ” Inu did it”. She is a neighbor and friend of him and she hasn’t even visited us today.
I thought, oh this is how it starts.
Rishab made some mess and following was the conversation I overheard.
Mama: “Do you know what will i do if you don’t clean?”
Rishab : “You will clean it…! ” – Innocent answer as usual 🙂
They also demonstrated shearing sheeps, milking cows(with machines) along with some fun facts related to these animals. It was equally interesting for us to learn the way they manage these farms.
These pumpkins are availble in various shapes, sizes (varying from pocket sized mini pumpkins to giant ones that weigh hundreds of pounds) and colors.
Rishab also checked out antique tractors at this Redbluff farm.
Rishab visited Red bluff farm today as to checkout a pumpkin patch with farm animals. He also found lot of interesting animals and things around. Lets go through them.
Antique tractor-2 was the coolest one and its rear wheels were more than twice the size of Rishab 🙂
This Ford tractor is as old as India’s independence is.
Rishab’s learning updates
Reads all upper case and lower case letters
Reads some simple words like Cat, Rishab, Car etc.
Reads many signs and logos like Chevron, Stop etc.
Asks me to stop when a red traffic light comes up and also orders me to “Go” when the signal changes to green.
Recognizes almost all car brands. More than his mom 🙂
Answers most of the questions of neighbors on his own, we dont need to translate in most of the cases.
He makes valid sentenses in some cases as opposed to words.
Learns new words/sentenses/expressions from cartoons that he watches.
Can say L properly and is using it.
He stilll cant says R as we(Indian way) do. Or may be he is right as per american accent.
Now Rishab is learning phonetic patterns, that should make his words exploration easier.
I did not have any such formal basic training in English and it was all about remembering what we are told and trying to reproduce from the limited knowledge imparted from the books. We didnt have any english channels or magazines in 1980s in the small town that were were in. I feel as excited as Rishab when he uses a difficult word or when he constructively comes up with somethig that we havent taught him.
