Where is summer...??

I find myself questioning exactly this everyday! Where is summer? We have been on "summer vacation" for how long...? And there hasn't been that much sun! Anyway, can you tell I'm writing this as it's raining? Lol...
I have officially decided on the two cultures I will use! They will be *drum roll please!* Mexico and India. I think that they are two cultures very different from our own and each other which I feel is important. By the cultures being different from each other, the kids will have an easier time differentiating the two, I think. I have been looking at books on Follett, to see which might be appropriate to use. Follett is a very cool site. It has helped me a lot in my book choosing process.
Guess that's all the news for now! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

I'm back!

I am back from New York, have been for 2 days now. It was a good trip, though it felt long surprisingly.
Now that I'm back, I would like to get some work done before I leave on my next trip. I will be leaving on July 19, so it gives me less than 2 weeks. I know that one of my cultures will be Mexico definitely. However, I am still having a difficult time choosing the second! I want it to be fun for the kids(and me!), but it cannot be too difficult. If it is hard, it will make it difficult for me to pick and make activities to go along with it. It seems like such a big decision! : )
I'll be in touch!
