Reading!!!

I love to watch my kids succeed at something that they work so hard for. It has been so much fun watching Justin learn to read. Tonight he read me 5 books by himself and then when I left he reread them again. Then he came out of his room and asked if he could call his grandma and read her a book, which he did, then his dad. He is really enjoying it which is the fun part. I love to see his little eyes light up when he says "the end" to another book he has mastered. Anyway it has been such a fun time watching him do this this year. Being a parent has so many great opportunities I wouldn't change it for anything. Keep up the good work Justin!

My favorite part about Chloe learning to read was that she can now read to Myah. Put him to work with your little ones. They'll love it.

That is so fun, isn't it? Stomper isn't quite as eager as Justin, but he does get happy when he succeeds, and I just get a thrill watching him. Neat!

I know exactly how you feel.. although we're not as advanced yet, but lately Em has been really into wanting to read stories to me herself (considering she's become pro at not only recognizing her letters' but sounding them out and now combining them). It's so fun to see how excited they become when they succeed!! Your so right!! Moments like this def. make me so happy to be a MOM!!)
