just needed to post

This post is short and simple. Looking back at old photographs, I ran across this series of pictures we used as a thank you for my son's kindergarten teacher. That was the year he learned to read. He sat there reading Frog and Toad and I was just amazed. Three years later and I can still find him lounging on his bed reading.

What a great gift his teacher was able to give him .. the gift of reading.

This is pretty great! It's amazing when we see these things happen in our children... it sneaks up on us, and all of a sudden something they couldn't quite do before, they now can! I love watching Kirsten read street signs and commercial blurbs that pop up & disappear quickly - her mind is grasping those words & she tells me what they are! I love that she can do this now! Our kids are amazing, and I think giving the teachers some commendation for their part in these lives is a great idea!!!
