Ane Speaks – in Spanish

Ane sometimes likes to debrief us on what she learned in Sunday school. Yesterday, though, I had gotten a little inside baseball to her class that day.

You see, her Sunday school teachers during the 9 am hour are… Grandma and Gichan. They’ve been teaching the pre-kindergarten Sunday school for years now.

So, Grandma told me what Ane had said in class that day, and when she started telling the Webmaster and me about her lesson, I was ready. The lesson that day had been about John the Baptist, and how he lived on locusts and wild honey out in the wilderness. Apparently, Ane had informed her Grandma that she doesn’t like honey.


When she brought up the locusts and honey in her description of class, I said, “By the way, Ane, you LOVE honey. I always put the huckleberry honey or regular honey on your corn muffins or biscuits when we have them! Grandma says that the next time we have honey at the table, you shouldn’t get any because you told her that you didn’t like it.”

Ane didn’t even bat an eye. “No comprendo,” she replied with a straight face.

    Ane also speaks – in sign. Part of the lesson was John the Baptist’s message of “STOP doing wrong things and do GOOD things”. As usual, we worked on a couple new signs, this week being “stop” and “good”. Auntie (who often helps in class) was sitting in the corner and offered an unsolicited comment. Ane turned quickly in her chair, and firmly (with fully annoyed expression) signed STOP to her. Auntie cracked up in laughter. My apologies for giving her a new avenue to be the boss.

    Well, I’ve always suspected that Ane was plotting her world domination and this just proves that she’s preparing for that by learning many languages.
