Ben used his birthday money, and some precious savings, to purchase something he has been wanting for a while…Rosetta Stone Language software. Ben is learning Spanish!
He selected Spanish because I know a lot of it (did you know that?), and because he works with a lot of Hispanic people. They don’t speak so much English, so in an attempt to communicate Ben is learning Spanish.
The other night Ben was talking away to his laptop and learning to pronounce new vocabulary when Elaine hollered from her crib. After a very fussy day, she had gone to bed VERY early, and thus was awake. Very awake. So she got to have a Spanish lesson with Daddy!
