When T-Man was in public school, he didn't like reading. He did it....but he didn't like it. After about 6 months of homeschooling, he loves it. He feels no pressure to be the fastest or in his case, bad because he was one of the slowest readers in his class. He is just reading. Period!
He reads every day and some days his "assignment" is to read to Muffin. She picked her favorite books, which were VERY girly, and he read them to her. I just love seeing my children reading together.
One last thing....Muffin is wearing one of her favorite dance costumes in these pictures. That girl would live in dance costumes if I let her. :)
