Charlie is learning to read. He is still in the very slow stage but making progress. A few nights ago while trying to read a verse of scripture by himself he read the word "doctrine". We all clapped and cheered. We were very impressed at his ability to read that big long word.
Today I asked Charlie to read to me while I was getting ready. He started reading an "I Can Read" book that had three words on each page with an alphabet theme. There were a few tricky words like "America" and "infant" and"elephant" but most of the words were as simple as "bike" and "car". By the time he reached the "L" page he had stopped. When I told him to keep reading he said, "Do I have to. I'm too stressed out?"
