Look who can read....almost

A while back, I heard of a good book for parents to teach their children to read, Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, so I checked it out from the library to look through it. One of the kids spilled water all over it which meant we had to buy it, which meant we were definitely at least going to try it since we had to pay for it. We are now on lesson 48! It is very easy to follow, everything is scripted out for you and it only takes about 15-20 minutes a lesson. We have been doing it every weekday, give or take and sometimes on the weekends. I really like it because it is easy, but also it teaches the phonics and not just sight words, and also it teaches comprehension as well. Macy enjoys having the one on one time and it is fun to watch her get excited when she gets it right! This is the story she read during one lesson earlier this week:
Definately worth checking out at your library.

Happy Birthday Emma!

Wow! It sure doesn't feel like a year since she was born! It has been a fast, but great year with her. Emma's Birthday was actually Tuesday, but we had a party today. We celebrated on Tuesday by me taking all 3 kids to the doctor to all get shots. Yippee!!

We had a small family party with Seth's parents. Emma enjoyed spending time with Grandma and Grandpa, her presents , and of course the cake. Happy Birthday Emma!
