What We've Been Reading....

It's been amazing to me to watch my kids do so well in the dual language program at their school.  Kaitlyn is especially excited about it.  This past Monday, I got a few more English/Spanish books to read to the kids.  I think my days of butchering the Spanish books are over.  Even though Kaitlyn can not understand all of what she reads, she is reading incredibly well in Spanish.  So, yesterday, we all sat down and I read the book to them in English and Kaitlyn read the book in Spanish.  I can't believe how she has soaked up the "rules" of the language...what letters together make what sound...and getting the basic idea of what is written just by the little that she knows.  I know that the spoken will come way after their understanding but I am so happy with our choice to put them both in to the program.
