We went to Aquatica in San Antonio. There were lots of different rides there, and they all were water rides. There was even a fake lagoon with waves! My favorite was the one where we had swim rings and we floated for a long time.
Today is the first day of 2nd grade for Rishab at NorthEast elementary school Waltham.
Teeth update : Only one upper tooth is yet to show up.
Veer visited us and Rishab was super excited to play with him. Both played with Dash and Dot, though Veer couldn’t figure out what was moving around him.
Waltham Overlook has lush greenery and is surrounded by lots of trees. We find many bunnies in the lawn or surrounding areas specially in the evenings. Here is Rishab chasing some of them.
Art time with Rishab. We picked up sour gourd for our art and created these alligators. First one (Rishab is almost touching it) was created by Rishab and the challenging one was by me.
Ingredients : Sour gourd for the body (perfectly matches), Cucumbers for the legs(you could use sour gourds too), Beetroot for the red tongue and Puffed rice for teeth.
Wish you all a very happy and prosperous diwali.
Our friends from Louisiana visited ISKCON in the evening and here are the kids. F
Few more camera shy kids were playing around.
Like all kids Rishab loves cars and other toys.
Some times i wonder at how many things today kids are exposed to. During my childhood all i had was a few plastic toys which could hardly move. Rishab and this generation has access to iPad, iPhone, remote controlled cars, helicopters and all kinds of fancy toys.
I must say Rishab takes care of his toys and I still don’t remember he breaking any of his toys.
I am glad i looked at his toys through the lens today. loved every bit of it.
We bought a mint plant and i taught Rishab how to water the plant and take care of it. We also sowed some chilli seeds in another pot. It was interesting to show him how those plants germinate from the seeds.
Within a week this plant had enough leaves and Preethi used some leaves for making Chutney & i mixed them with lemonade. Now everyday as soon as Rishab comes back from school, first thing he does is check the plants.
