Our third reader

We had one of those special homeschooling moments today. Kristin was working with Isaiah on his phonics. He was doing well blending his letter sounds and for the first time he read a word that he didn't already know by sight! He's such an eager learner and is very motivated to become a reader. What a joy it is to teach your children such a skill as reading!

Lest you think that homeschooling is full of epiphanies like this, let me tell you this. While Isaiah was learning to read, Faith was in the backyard learning that dumping a bottle of bubble juice into the air conditioner is a great way to make a ton of bubbles.

Yay for Isaiah! He must be so proud of himself. Before you know it he'll be reading all those Froggy books himself!

I always knew Faith was a smart cookie! :-)

Thanks Megan--you have a good memory.

We're still grateful for when you led a group of friends in watching our children while Kris and I goofed around in HI!

Oh, dear...I hope you got pictures of the bubbles. If not, I'm sure Faith would be pleased to provide another demo! ;-)

Read this and had to comment. We totally relate.
