leaps & bounds

This has been an exciting week in Asia's life as she takes leaps & bounds towards reading! She is really quite smart (we are pretty sure she is a genius!). Ali & I had tears in our eyes the other day when for the first time she began linking all the sounds of letters....and reading!! She has been working on her sounds for a long time and a few combinations, but it seems it just clicked in her head, because she has gotten much better at it recently. She was looking on www.starfall.com (a great website for teaching kids letters & how to read) the other day and just like that - she was reading entire words!! Now, she gets so excited with the cutest smiles when she can read and understand a whole sentence. We know this is just the beginning of a whole new world that is open to her as she falls more in love with learning. We are really excited for her.
