The other day Ben disappeared into his room for a while before finding me and presenting me with a note he wrote all by himself. He’s getting really good at de-constructing words and sounding them out but he usually needs a little prompting to do something like this. This was the first time he had ever done this all by himself.


Ben (very excited and hopeful): “Daddy, can you read it?”
Me: “Um, sorry buddy but I can’t. What does it say?”
Ben: “We watched the Tour De France. Did I get it right?”

I was very proud of him. He’s so ready for Kinder in a few weeks.

    That is awesome! I loved it when cecilia started doing that – the first sign of independence in learning. Now that she can read, I love that we can hit the library and turn her loose.
