time to celebrate!!

A couple years ago Adin was working with Brett on learning to read.  Riah was so interested, and would beg to have his own “lesson” with Baba when Adin was done each evening.  Even though he was 3, Brett began working with him and teaching from, “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons” each day for about 5-10 minutes.  After getting about half way through the book, Riah would get tired and disinterested during lessons.  So after starting/stopping several times, we decided to take a break for several months.  Recently, we picked it back up again and Riah worked very hard, with Wii incentives, and now is our third child who is reading well.  :)

Of course with something THIS big, we had to have a bit of an ending goal….so at about lesson 70 we told Riah he could choose any restaurant he wanted when he finished the book.  He decided on Benihana since he had never been, and wanted to go so badly!

Gabe was scared for the first few minutes the chef was chopping and cooking in front of him!

We all enjoyed it! :)

I love that Brett gets the special time with each child teaching them to read.  It will always be a sweet memory for us, and hopefully for each kid as well. :)
