Howdy Ho Boys and Girls!

"You smell alot like flowers!"



We've been teaching Elizabeth to read. She formed her very own first sentence today and found it highly amusing...








It reads "the brown poo-poo can dance on water" and was entirely her compilation. We started teaching her to read in December and she currently has a reading vocabulary of 70 words. We add several new words each day. Todays new words were fingers, reading, look, stand up, on and poo-poo. She can count to 50 easily and has a broad Spanish vocabulary as well which is good because she will be able to translate those signs for me in Home Depot and Lowes in a few years when I think speaking Spanish will be mandatory.

She will be four next month!

*If anyone is interested there is a program that we are using that works on the same principle as baby signs. Your child can actually be able to read by 18 months of age if you start them in the first year. We discovered it in November and Deborah can take orders for it. It consists of 5 DVDs and cost around $70. It obviously works. There is also a cool website called STARFALL that is geared towards early learning too for those of you who have pre-schoolers.

That's great Gary! Being a good reader is so darned important.

And she's already 4? Where does the time go?
