I don't know what happened, but something finally clicked this past week! Nev is finally reading! I think I may have bribed her, lol. I told her that she could take a class with her homeschool co-op if she learned how to read this summer. She normally plays dumb when we are reading books and loses interest, but this past week something clicked in her and she has been reading out lout with me. She's always had a hard time with phonics and sounding out words, but she is finally doing it! I'm so happy, you have no idea!

It's wonderful to be with her in these moments. I love it!

That's wonderful!!! I LOVE being able to see each new thing my kids learn. I'm glad someone else isn't seeing all those little steps instead of me.

... and hey, what's wrong with a little bribe once in a while?

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.
If these minds love one another the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden.
But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
