I just read my old, old post. An udpate is in order.
No Latin t-shirt was needed! By the end of the year Aku was leaning towards taking the next Latin class, but not ready to commit. Then his class ended and he missed it. He missed it!
Then he said he wanted to continue. I checked in with him several times before paying the tuition for the next year, but he was adamant.
And he's been enjoying it. : )
