Tonight I was sitting with Jason in the living room explaining the rules for Spanish pronunciations. Using English as an example, I was reminding Jason of how vowels followed by a single consonant and then a vowel make a hard, or long sound.....and if there are two consonants following, it makes a soft, or short sound.
As I sounded out a couple of examples, Caleb purposefully came into the room. "Papa" he said. "If I get out my computer (a toy computer with alphabet and number games), I can show you a screen where it will teach you how to make the letter sounds. Would you like me to get it for you?" :-)
