Eugene, Thank you for your message. It was very helpful. I think you said what I wanted to hear. I agree that the kids are getting a lot more english instruction than spanish so, it's good that we speak spanish to them. A lot of times we focus on how important it is that kids learn english, forgetting how important spanish is. Some times kids grow up perhaps retaining their spoken english but never learning to read and write in spanish. I think it would be great to encourage them to keep practicing thier spanish. I guess it's all about balance!
