My boy. He's growing up, as they all do. He's 5 years old now. We are working our way through a book to teach him how to read. We're about 1/3 of the way through the book.
Recently he came to me with this flashcard with the word TOP on it. He showed me the card and sounded out the word himself. He read the word TOP.
It was his first read-it-all-by-himself word that wasn't his name!
Way to go, son!
Next up: riding his bike without training wheels. Now that summer weather has arrived, he's practicing every day.
