Well color me surprised. The girlies suddenly started to read tonight. We haven’t been trying to teach them, they’ve just shown intermittent interest before, and it certainly wasn’t something that came up this weekend. Actually we snuck away to Tahoe on Saturday, and I thought I’d have minute or two to post some pretty lake pictures tonight. But Ro and Ree had other plans. After dinner, they grabbed some of my mom’s old teaching books that were in the playroom and away they went.
What do they do, learn this stuff while I’m sleeping?
Seriously, congratulations baby girls. This is a huge step and your daddy and I are so proud of you. We are a teeny bit sad that this will soon mean the end of our beloved air spelling, but honestly we are truly ecstatic for you!
PS: We weren’t at all prepared for this, so you’ll notice that the video was really haphazard and the girls are wearing PJs with their hair still scraped back in the quite stylish “please don’t drag your freshly washed hair in your dinner” ponytails. And we didn’t think to separate Ro and Ree so they could each read in peace. Actually I don’t totally regret that one, because my fave moment in the video is at 4:54 when you see my hand come out of nowhere and cover Ro’s mouth to pull her back in her chair. Hee!
