As I’ve discussed before, this homeschooling thing has been a real challenge for me. But, there is one area that I’ve actually enjoyed–my daughter’s American Sign Language class. A long time ago, we’re talking decades, I was an interpreter of the deaf. I haven’t had the opportunity to really use it much, so I’ve forgotten a lot of the vocabulary. My daughter’s class is showing me just how much I’ve forgotten, but with the contextual gleaning skills I learned from the interpreting courses I took all those years ago, more often than not, I’m able to pick out enough to decode what the teacher is signing. And with each passing week, this old skill set of mine is getting better. It’s true, you’re never too old to learn–or in my case–relearn something new.
