A Big Day
Check out the Super Reader above. Vivi's brain has decided it is time to read. YIPPY! And thanks to Miss Happy, Zoey's sponsor teacher, for recommending the Bob Books.
I picked up the first set of the Bob Books, brought them home and read one to Vivi. Then it was time to run to the very cold range opening. Vivi rode in the car with her box of books in her lap. When we got to Kincaid Park, Zoey popped out to warm up and zero her rifle. Vivi and I took our time getting all our cold gear on. Vivi wanted me to read her a book. Instead, she read it to me! These are wonderful tools. Within ten minutes of laying her hands on these books, she was reading the first one by herself. Amazing!
Not to be overshadowed, Zoey cleaned all her targets in the prone position without a stand! She earned a sushi dinner for that one. Good job, Zoey.
While driving to I Luv Sushi, Vivi was talking about her brand new accomplishment. I asked her how it feels to be a full blown reader. She replied "Great, I am glad I don't have a reading problem anymore."
Zoey filmed her this morning before she had had her hair combed, I know she looks a little rough. That was the first thing she wanted to do this morning, read her book all by herself!
