I am so proud of my 6 year old son, I promised him that I’d write about him today. He wanted me to blog “him” — so here goes: Jaden, this one is for you.
For several months, Jaden was “practicing” his reading. A 1st grader, he worked it at daily in school and out. This week, he proudly pulled out different books, some with complicated and tricky words, and read them all — like a champion!! He beamed when I congratulated him but I challenged him — I’ll pick a page at random and let’s see you do it, I said. Not only did he do that but he read pages before and after. Perfectly. Reading like a champion.
I am bursting with pride. Jaden, I hope that you read this . . . you should be proud of yourself. Lord knows, I am. So — this “blog’s” for you!!!
