Reading is her gift (other things are not) but reading is! She just "gets" it. I graduated from college with a teaching degree and spent time helping little ones during my student teaching to sound out letters in hopes that they will figure out the word by the end. We've never done that together and that is a gift to me. I never taught school past student teaching and reading may be why. I have a feeling with some of the others we will go through that process.
One of the joys of my day is if everything (naps) goes as planned I get 30-45 minutes of uninterrupted time with Savannah after she comes off the bus. And some days she chooses to read. I get to snuggle with her and hear the gift that has been given to both of us. She is growing up so fast and I'm doing my best to enjoy and remember these moments!
