Yay, Blaine!

Today was a big day for Blaine. He showed me that he knows the whole Soundabet in uppercase letters. That's 41 big steps on the road to reading and writing.

Blaine was excited today to go home with his own personal deck of the Queen's lowercase cards. I am confident that he will soon master these cards. Soon after that, he'll master the 41 Soundabet sight words from apple, boy, cat, dog.... etc....to children, thumb, and ring.

I asked Blaine who was most helpful in his learning the cards—he knows them really well—and he said, "My mom." He was definite about that.

Congratulations to you, too, Debra.

Blaine also showed me that he knows all of his classmates' names.
This is the face of a happy boy.

What better way to celebrate than with 15 minutes of bike riding?
