Learning to read

Some of you already know that we homeschool. Well, this year brings a new kindergarten student for me to teach. It's been a while since I taught one of my children to read and this boy is learning completely differently than the girls did.

Have I mentioned that raising boys is COMPLETELY different from raising girls?? Yeah?? Well, it is certainly worth repeating.

Josh is having a ball learning to read. Unfortunately, he now thinks he has to sound out words even as he speaks them!

"Muh-muh-muh-muh-Mom, can I have some luh-luh-luh-luh-lunch now?"

I'm not sure how this will help his reading, but I'm too busy trying not to wet my pants, laughing at my weird life, to worry about that.


  1. I had NO clue how different boys are from girls. I thought after having two girls, I was set to raise a third one ..The Boy. Man, was I wrong.

  2. It is incredible to me that they are so very different! Each child has his own learning style, of course, but this one isn't even learning in a way that I, a GIRL, would find logical. I'm having to redefine that for myself so I can just let him learn how he needs to learn! LOL
