Tuesday afternoon after picking up the kids from school we stopped by a thrift store. While I shopped, Kyle looked at books. He started reading a Hardy Boys book and had read two chapters by the time we left the store. So, I bought the book. After he did his homework, he went back to reading his new book. While I was fixing dinner, he came into the kitchen to tell me all about what he'd read so far. I was just amazed! When he started second grade, he was really struggling with reading; struggling through sentences and stumbling over fairly simple words. Now, three months into the school year, he's excited about reading Hardy Boys! I am so pleased with his progress.
