I'm so proud of my older daughter! She's really improving with her reading skills! And she's reallyworking hard at it. It makes me want to cry when Isee her sitting in the chair reading a book instead of playing her nintendo DS! Last year she was really starting to lag behind with her reading skills. I was worried and disappointed because I am an avid reader and always have been. I was reading adult books (not porno stuff silly) by the time I was in the 5th grade. I would sneak my mom and dad's books to my room to read under the covers. So anyway, am thrilled she i doing better. She's not completely where she needs to be but is making good progress. We got her progress report - she got a B in reading, A+ in science, A in math, A+ in writing. Not bad!
My toher daughter who is in Kindergarten is doing well also but as a bit of a talking issue. I'm not sure where she gets that from *snicker* I tell my husband that our daughters are such talkers and must get it from his side of the family...he rolls his eyes. You see, I spent half of the third grade with my desk up against the chalkboard because I wouldn't shut up...and not much has changed!
