Noah finished Sing, Spell, Read, and Write this week (which, for those who don't know what this is, it is a phonics-based reading program.). They say that when you finish, you are reading at about a third grade reading level. I'm not sure if that is true or not , but Noah is my third child to have finished it and so far, I have three that love reading and do it well.
Anyhow...Noah finished this week, so he had a special frozen yogurt date with mommy and daddy (Thank you Grandma Nash for watching all four of the others!!!). Thankfully, Bliss (here in Ojai) has a non-dairy option. Noah enjoyed the special attention, the holding hands, the frozen yogurt with TONS of candy toppings...but he beamed with joy the entire time, looking into our eyes, as mommy and daddy took turns praying over him. We asked God to give him a love for His Word, and the ability to read and understand it. We spent a lot of time just thanking God for the many things that make Noah so unique in our family.
It was so sweet, such a special time for all three of us.
Congratulations Noah Benjamin! You have worked hard! :-)
