Our Rockin' Reader

Jonah's teacher sent me a text Thursday night to tell him to go to the Media Center to be on the morning news.  He has been on the news lots of times over his 4 years there but this time was super special.  He got to very nice awards.  First, he received the award for reading One Million Words.  That's a big deal at his school.  He achieved that at the very end of first grade.  Then, midway through the spring semester of second grade.  So, to get that before Thanksgiving in 3rd grade is pretty massive.  A small percentage of kids at his school accomplish that at all.

Then, he also received the first award at his school for reading all 15 of the Sunshine State Readers.  That's another big deal.  

We are super proud of this Rockin' Reader!

The Mantle

We pulled out our Christmas decorations yesterday and (slowly) started getting our house ready for Christmas.  The kids and Dan completely decorated the three trees.  Then, as the boys played, I put other things out.  The boys were in the back playing in Jonah's room when I did the mantle and added the stockings.  Micah came out a little while later and said "Hey, why did you put socks on our fireplace?"
