My sons have never been very good readers, there I said it, out there for the whole world to see. At least thats what I thought until recently. My oldest has struggled for years with tracking issues and with a general fear of reading. That stint in the special reading class at school did not help him at all! He had a teacher who called him bad names and told him he was just stupid. But I digress.
I myself, love to read. Anything, Everything, Everywhere. So it has been with some surprise that my, not to interested in reading, sons have miraculously started reading. Not just because as part of their homeschooling, I demand that they read, but because they actually seem to be enjoying their books! Who woulda thunk it??
Tyler is currently reading "Carry On, Mr. Bowditch", and Mason is heavily involved in the lastest Hardy Boys adventure. And I am one very happy momma. This summer I purchased several paperbacks through Amazon to have in case someone caught the reading bug, and it looks like it took. The library is nice, but I wanted the kids to read for the enjoyment of reading without deadlines or the worry of overdue fees. So this has been working pretty well. I must go now. Where did I put my book???
