After dinner tonight we got the kids bathed, put Emma to bed and then the rest of us piled on the couch to read a book. We've done a few times the past week and we are all loving it. We're reading some of The Magic Treehouse books. I have been the one reading, but tonight we let Luke read. I smiled the entire time! He is amazing! He is 7 1/2 years old; in the 2nd grade and is reading on a 5th grade reading level! He is such a good reader. He reads with inflection and really tells the story.
He's having some problems concentrating on getting his work done at school so his teacher, principle and I came up with the idea of letting him read to some of the younger grades. He is going to his 1st grade teacher's class and reading to her class as a reward for getting his work done. He's doing a great job at it. I'm so proud!!!
