Pleased as Punch

I know I've been a slacker blogger...and I have lots in my mind (and pictures too!) to share.

But I cannot let today pass without sharing this:


Hadleigh read her first words today! My eyes filled with tears as I watched reflected in her face the moment when it finally "clicked" in her mind. Light bulb moment! She was so excited. She read some other words too because she wanted to try more. And she did great! She loves spending time with books...and I know she will love it even more as she discovers that she can read all of the story as it is written to herself!

And perfectly timed was the arrival of our Book It! Certificates today. I loved this program as a child, and so I was very excited to hear that they have a program for homeschoolers as well! I let Hadleigh open the package and explained it to her...let's just say she's really excited about earning those personal pan certificates!

p.s. Another great thing about homeschooling...you can come dressed as a princess!
