A New Reader and a New Family Member

Even before I had children of my own, I anticipated the joy of helping and watching my children learn to read.  We’ve been playing around with learning to read for several months, just letter recognition and decoding simple words.  But I can’t describe the delight I felt in observing this scene as I passed through my boys’ room to put some things in the closet.

Yep, my sweet kindergartener was proudly reading to his new pet, a Betta named Bluey.  I was informed by this new reader that our new family member thought the book was good.

I realize that I never introduced my blog readers to Bluey.  He joined our home in celebration of that very special fifth birthday.
