Gramm and I began working through the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons roughly two years ago. There were quite a bit more than 100 lessons taught and they were not all easy. As a reward for finishing the book, I promised Gramm that we would have a "book party" to celebrate. He finished the book last year right around the time we sold our house and were too busy to partay. So, tonight the long awaited book party came to pass.
Each child was asked to bring their favorite book with a passage ready to read to the group. My niece started us out reading from Anne of Avonlea. I did not get to snap a pic of her sweet self because things were a little cray at that moment (i.e. twin girls and baby boy wanted in on the action).
All in all, the party was a huge hit. I am thankful for the opportunity to be able to teach Gramm how to read, but also to really be able to enter into the celebration of his accomplishments which is something I hope to do throughout his life.
