Daddy Tears


Ben came home from school yesterday and had this in his backpack. He said he wrote it all by himself at school. It's a letter to dad. After he had me read the note, he said "Mom, I think I spelled 'could' and 'want' wrong. How do you spell them again?" What a smartie! He's in the process of writing a little book for one of his homework assignments and it's pretty cute. I'll post it when he's finished. I'm just amazed at how much he has learned in just these few months of 1st grade. He can read basically anything and is getting better and better at writing. So, when Jake came home he read it in front of Ben and got a little teary eyed. It was very sweet. We feel lucky to have such a wonderful little guy in our family. Ben is such a sweetheart and a great helper and brother. We love you, bud!

wow, that's pretty impressive. He's such a smart kid! That was just too sweet. I can't wait until our kids start writing things....hopefully they'll be nice things about us and not the opposite ;-)

That is so adorable. I love those little moments. I just have a quick thought...I really started reading novels to Colby at that age and his reading and writing skills were amazing. If you haven't already, get some of the Roald Dahl books like THE BFG or George's Marvelous Medicine etc. and see how he likes them.
