Yo Soy!

I have to give a little shout out to my 9yo and my almost-7yo: Porter and Tristan.  Last night was Open House at the elementary school.  Both boys are in the dual language immersion program, and are learning Spanish.  We started at the Tristan’s classroom, but pressed for time, we didn’t really get to interact much.  However, when we went to the Porter’s class, most of the parents and students were gone, so there was a lot of interaction with the teacher.  While Porter was puttering around and showing me various things, his teacher started to ask Tristan questions in Spanish.  Tristan replied to her in Spanish, and I was just awe-struck.

I’m sure the questions and answers were pretty basic stuff, but still, having that degree of communication mastery so early in TWO languages is damned impressive to a guy who is pretty English-centric.

Well done, boys!
