Rishab’s Number plate

Looked up at Vanity number plates of Texas other day. Here is an interesting one i liked. I didn’t buy this as it was very expensive (almost 8 times more expensive than Louisiana)

Funky hair day @ Emerson elementary school, Houson, TX

Rishab’s school Emerson elementary school (Pre-k) at Houston announced Funky hair day. That day on Rishab kept talking about how his hair should look like. Daddy’s hair gel worked wonders to make him a Mohawk.

That day he came home saying that some of his friends touched his hair and called him Mohawk.! He was excited to have one of the coolest hair style in his class.

Rishab’s Writing updates

Rishab has been reading and writing for over a year. He has perfected small words but yet to get a good command many spellings. He reads quite well these days missing only large and unknown words.

Here is a sample of his writing as of November 2012.

As visible, simple and often repeated words like days of week are all correct but month names are mostly wrong as they weren’t practiced. He is still far ahead in writing compared to his peers. He will eventually learn all these.

It was a spectacular display of airplanes. Rishab also got to get inside most of those planes.

This was my 2nd air show after India’s Airshow in Bangalore.

Learning Ice skating

Rishab has been rollerĀ skatingĀ for over a year now. He hasn’t been skating regularly hence he is yet to gain good speed. It was time to introduce him to another form of skating -Ice skating which was very near to our house. Memorial mall has this ice skating rink and they conduct regular classes. Rishab joined a month back and completed his basics.

He carefully balances and hardly ever falls down. Advanced classes should teach him to get some good speed soon.

Horse riding at Old MacDonalds farm

Rishab tried horse riding for the first time at Old MacDonalds farm in Humble, Texas.
This farm had a nice little picnic environment where you could meet farm animals and feed them. It also had pony rides. Rishab was brave to try out horse riding all alone. I just stood aside and watched him.

I could clearly see his excitement. I am sure this was a different experience compared to the horse rides inĀ carousel.

Apart from all kinds of farm animals they had some adorable animals including deer one of them was taking rest on this hot sunny day. There were many more roaming around.

They had couple of rabbits of different colors. Rishab felt that only the white ones are clean.

It took Rishab a few seconds to feel comfortable among these occasionally jumping goats.

Rishab also chased a peacock around the farm. Looks like that peacock was used to kids chasing it, so it didn’t run too far but just far enough to get away from Rishab.

Ganesha festival at Houston

Satish and family invited us to Ganesha festival at their home along with their friends. This was our first Ganesha festival at USA.

This was a great time for Rishab to learn about Ganesha festival and the Hindu rituals. He started wondering when everyone started singing a prayer that he already knew.
