We heard recently that Kyle had won $75 from school. That’s cool, but that’s not the cool part. He took the national Spanish exam and scored in the high 80th percentile for the nation, putting him as one of the best Spanish students in the US.

Considering that no one at the house speaks another language, and not Spanish, we’re not in a Spanish speaking area (white middle class for the most part) and he hasn’t worked in Spanish groups a lot (some at a job he had), it’s pretty cool that he’s so fluent. He impressed us when we were in Mexico last year, and I guess he’s gotten better since.

That was pretty cool, and we’ll see how far he goes with it. He loves languages and wants to try others in college, having already tried a few here at home on his own.
