Mason has been real close to reading for quite a while now. We could tell he was ready, but he just didn’t have the confidence to do it yet. That kid hates making mistakes, and I think that now that he is in kindergarten and he is seeing how easy the work is for him, he is realizing that he is quite capable of reading basic early reader books. It is so exciting watching this click with him. Tonight he picked his bedtime story and announced that HE was going to read it to us! AND HE DID! And he was SO excited! You could tell that he was not just loving all the praise from us, but he is truly proud of himself. Good times, I tell ya, good times.
