After studying the Tower of Babel in history today, Ken and I left the children dumbfounded at lunch–We suddenly became unable to speak or understand the childrens (or each others) languages!
Wed planned it out yesterday: From the time Ken got up (right after our “school time”) until after lunch we would suddenly “forget” English.
The girls vacillated between amused and frustrated–resorting to pantomime to communicate simple requests. Ken was quite creative and made up his own Babelspeek, but I was lazy and just used Spanish.
Although amusing for a short time (since we knew it was a game), it was a relief to get up from the lunch table and understand one another again!
Now Kaira and Kendra are outside building ziggurats with rocks and sticks.
