Love at First Sight
Talking, reading, writing - they are such a simple things. Things we often take for granted. We do them every day without even thinking twice about it. Our kids learn these things and for the most part, pick them up quickly. But, language is something that Little Bug struggles with - weather it is spoken or written. We have hope that he will one day be able to speak and read and write, but we recognize that it will take more time than with most kids. Or so we thought.
We have a communication log that goes back and forth with Little Bug. We write things in it that happened at home that may influence his day at school or any accomplishments he has had. In turn, they let us know how he is progressing at school and if there were any struggles during the day. Yesterday we got the most wonderful note home...
"He is starting to recognize and read sight words..." then it listed some of the words. My heart skipped a beat! This is such a huge thing for him! It's like looking at a door... you know what is behind the door and you want it so badly, but you, yourself, have no power to open it. Then, unexpectedly, the door opens just a crack and the view within is better than you'd ever imagined!
