The other night while we were eating dinner, Jonas finished first; he was running around and playing. All of the sudden he stopped and said K-Ar-i-boo. Cariboo. We were stunned. He had just read the word Cariboo on a game that was sitting on our counter. It was awesome. I had worked with Jonas on word sounds, but not on putting them together, he did that on his own. Later that same night we read an easy reading book for bedtime, and he read many of the words to me. Everytime he got one right on his own he was really excited. The next day we also kept reading it was amazing how much he was figuring out on his own. It won't be long and he'll be reading all the time. He wanted to read everything he saw. He tried reading signs on buildings and trucks that we were driving past it was awesome. He tells me he wants to learn to read so he can read to Ady when she wants him to.
