I am so excited as this week we will begin to blend letters to start our first process in reading. We have been so busy with traveling and attending so many different field trips. I am going to have to cut back on the field trips after this month of course! They are so fun it’s so hard. I want to her to be excited about learning and school and I feel like she learns so much on these little outings. The best way to learn is through real life experiences! We have learned all our vowels with Abeka and are moving on to blend the letter T with the vowels which is the first step to reading. I think I am more excited than she is. I love to read, I can read a book in 2 days. I want her to have this passion for reading and I think about our future readings together and having a mommy and me book club that I can share with my girls for a lifetime that will be our thing! So this is very exciting to me. Not only for that reason, but because “I” get to help her in learning how to read. I will witness her first sentence the same I way I did her first words, and first steps. I will see her eyes light up when she reads that sentence and I won’t get the aftermath because she already did it at school. I will witness it first hand and that makes me excited. At this point in her life I have witnessed all her first. I have to thank my husband and my father (God) for allowing me to witness all these first! What a blessing.
