I have to brag January 19, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 4:53 pm

I had a team meeting at Owen’s school today.  It was wonderful.  Amazing!  I went into it thinking nothing they could say would upset me.  The last meeting said it all.  However…Owen has been expressing quite an interest in letters lately.  His teacher decided to probe the upper case alphabet letters and wouldn’t you know–Owen knew them all!  Yup, his brilliant mom said, "All 24?"  They told me it was all 26.  And they think he knows his numbers up to 20–if not higher.  They will have to probe the lower case letters.  And when he has all of them–if he doesn’t already–get this!!  Spelling. 

I had to phone everyone and anyone on the way home from the meeting and brag.  My mom said he will probably read pretty easily too.  And I suspect he will.  He loves to look at books.  The amazing thing is that Owen has not been formally taught letters–he learned it on his own.  I could cry. 

Knitting.  I have been working on Clapotis.  I will upload a picture later, after the kids go to bed.  I have dropped 2 stitches  so far.  Fun.
