Like everything, our Family Project started long before it had a name. It started on a pact made between my husband and I, and neither of us had any idea where it would lead us. Many moons ago, we were generously invited to the home of a friend in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Since it wasn't by the beach, we politely declined - many times. Then, one day, we took them up on their offer... and following is a chronicle of where that has led us. I publish this only with the hopes that others will also try something new and see where that leads them. It is not always an easy path, but one that has changed our lives positively and immeasurably with still some distance to travel!
We leave in January 2015 for the last portion of our Family Spanish Project. Many thanks to SpanglishBaby for originally encouraging these postings that made our "experiment" seem so much more relevant and valued. I am forever grateful to the voice you gave us and the community you helped us discover!
