West Elementary School is running an ad in english and Spanish for kids who will be in kindergarten and need to learn english. they will be giving english classes for kindergarten and first grade during the summer...their mama's should go with them...The other day I was in the $1 store buying bird food and I recognized one of the ladies and her 2 kids from when I held my garage sale..she and the kids are as sweet as can be...the little boy is about 1st grade and baby is almost 2..she speaks very little english and I can get by poquito in spanish...anyhow..the little boy was looking at toys and mama wandered off with the little girl and he lost her..and freaked...just a little..he was trying to be cool...so he came to be and asked me if I had seen his mama..I said no, but I would find her for him...he was clinging to me...so I went up and down the aisles and after a short time (must have seen like an eternity to the little boy) I found her...she was like "oh...what?"...I tried to explain to her but lacked the spanish so I just reassured him that mama would never leave him as he was such a sweet and good little boy...but all of that could have been avoided if she spoke english and could have understood me when i was calling for her for her son...we have a small but growning Mexican population...I think it's because we have a large Catholic congregation and lots of farms...When they ran the ad for the kids they should have said the mothers were welcomed to come and learn too..ohhhhhh welllll...
