    Never will I look at the beginnings of WWI the same way!


    Great story! And the leaders were just as near-sighted!!!

    Yesterday Mr W (26 mos) went with me to watch DW play. He spent much of the time flirting with everyone and kicking a ball around. He then said hi to all her teammates using their names.

    I love all these stories, especially the read-a-thon, prime number discovery and easter bunny graphology! grin

    I am venturing a brag about DS 8.0 mos. because he has been standing for 30 minutes at a time for a month now. Yesterday I caught him on video pulling himself up to stand in the middle of the room. Not his first time to do that, but it's suddenly commonplace enough for me to film easily, and he just squats up, down, up down, like a weight lifter. (DS is adopted and started out behind the 8 ball, so we are delighted with his vitality.)

    So proud of my DS3! He has been a secret reader for while, any time I would catch him reading he would shut off.
    Finally yesterday, he brought me a book and told me to sit down because he was going to read me a story.
    I guess he finally found the confidence he needed, to show me his talent.
    I knew he could read some, but I was very surprised at how good he was, he only got stuck on one word and did not get mad when he needed help.

    My son stand up and learned to walk by holding coffee table, walking without assistant at 10 months, running arround at 11 months,
    I only realized that his early motor skill matters later I found he is advanced in reading and numbers too

    Enjoy your lovely DS:-)

    Show off my DS4's interest in music!!

    Since we got him piano, he is so into it, always wants to play. He can sit there hours to read his piano book and watch the DVD, and self taught himself quite many simple songs.
    He was in group music class with ten similar age kids, but he is away ahead of them, maybe because he pay so much attention on it, and practices it hours everyday, his log tern spam is amazing!!

    My colleage said he is very jealous because his DS not very much into music:-)

    I just joined today, so I'll first introduce myself...

    I'm Lynn and I have one child; a son age three.

    He is reading level two books, can count to 100 and identify any number up to 100. He is starting to write letters and numbers. He has a great vocabulary and sentence delivery. He knows the days of the week and months of the year and uses four and five syllable words. He's able to tell time on the hour, half hour and quarter hour. Some of his favorite things are dials and gauges. He loves his compass and he sleeps with a pocket watch that belonged to his great-great grandma.

    He's a sweet and outgoing little boy. Always talking up a stranger! (yikes)

    I haven't put him in preschool yet. He's not potty-trained and has some trouble with physical things like riding a bike. He's no athlete! LOL Hopefully when he's enrolled, he will pick up more physical skills. smile

    My son is 6 - will be 7 in June - currently in 1st grade. His teacher is doing reading assessments this week - she was blown away - he is reading and comprehending at 4th grade level. She is going to continue testing his reading, and see how high he goes. Until recently, he was struggling with the comprehension part - but once he figured that he had to remember what he read, he did fine smile His teacher knew he would take longer than the other kids for his assessment, so she kept him after school for an hour one day, then brought him home to me when they were done - she's really enjoying having him in her class smile
