The Joy of Having a Young Reader in the House

On any given day at our house now, you're liable to hear conversations that start like this:

"Wow, so I eat a lot of protein, huh, mom?"

"Reepicheep is so brave, isn't he? I mean, he's just a little mouse, but he's braver than the bravest lion..." (stops to think) "... well, not braver than Aslan, but braver than a
normal lion."

"Mom, what does ______ mean?"

Because now we have a young reader at our house!

And it is so much fun... hearing him learning about all kinds of things, getting wrapped up in stories, and go back and re-read books we've read together. His younger siblings love sitting next to him while he reads them stories too.

What an amazing thing it is to see the world open up to him. It also limits Doug & I's ability to talk in code. :)

But on the whole, what a wonderful thing it is to have a young reader in our home! What new accomplishments are you joyfully celebrating in your home?
