If I felt like being cute and clever, I’d write some of this post in Spanish, just to impress you. However, as we all know, I struggle mightily with speaking anything but English. And actually, depending on the busyness of my day, sometimes my English doesn’t even come out very clearly. Bless my family’s heart for translating my well meaning but oft times meaningless garb when I’m in the midst of doing too many things at once. (I’m a master of not finishing sentences and making my family guess where in the world I’m asking them to go put the…)
Which is why I’m so thankful for the fact that my boys are learning to speak Spanish through Rosetta Stone. It’s pricey software, no doubt. But we are so thankful we invested in this for our kids. It has been a fabulous tool. In fact, Justus now sometimes speaks more Spanish than English – just because he enjoys it so much. Matt understands what he’s saying, and so does Asa (who is on his second year of learning the language). Me? Well, slowly I’m actually beginning to pick out a few words so that sometimes I can shock him by actually answering his questions that he asks entirely in Spanish.
I mean, I have a time or two accidentally told him that we are having blue for breakfast or that it is cheese o’clock. Need I remind you that foreign languages are not my gift?
As a home school mom, I am thankful that I don’t have to be a master of all subjects in order for my children to receive a great education. The resources available are fantastic, and Rosetta Stone is just one example.
Now if I can just keep up with my kids. ;)
