Wow, that's a tough situation to be in. It must be extremely difficult for you. I have never been in that situation, so I don't know how I'd react. My husband is currently deployed, so my situation is like that of a single mother.

That would be awful for your kids to repeat a year of school, especially if they do not need to. Is it b/c they don't speak spanish? Could you just get a Rosetta Stone (spanish version - we have 1) and teach them over the summer how to speak spanish? It's very simple to use. I've done it. Or maybe you could hire a local (maybe a local's child) to use as a tutor for learning the language.

So sorry I can't be of more help. I just wanted to let you know that I do feel your sorrow.
