This and That

This post is more for me, so I can have a written account of the cute things my kids do and say. Some day when I have some time(ummmm, Jordan will graduate when?) I will write it down in their memory books. But, I hope you enjoy it also.

Allison was riding in the car with my friend's daughter, Abbi,who had a hole in her sock, Allison looked at it and wanted to know why her socks were broken.

Here are some of the attempts Jordan has made in saying words

mymote=remote. Now we don't know if he is saying that it belongs to him or if this is what he calls the remote.

sissy= his sister, Allison

bro bro= his brother, Jared



no night night= well, no explanation needed

dog, go woof woof, right there( pretty good for a 20 month old, don't you think)

Jordan's newest phrase: packpack=backpack

Graduation Day

Ok, so it is not "the graduation day" for Jared, but it is pretty special. Today Jared graduated from the Reading Recovery program at his school.

We are so pleased with how far Jared has come this year with his reading and writing. At the start of school he was a bit behind in both areas. As of today, he is at grade level in both reading and writing.

Last night, Jared read a 328 word book and is writing sentences such as: He has a Dad and a Mom and a sister, Allison and a brother Jordan.

He got a book and a certificate to mark the occasion. WAY TO GO, Jared!!
