Seven weeks into kindergarten, and just like that, Daisy and Annabelle are reading. I mean, they're not reading chapter books yet or anything, but they are sounding out words and recognizing certain words by sight. And it feels like magic.

This week they started homework. This was their homework yesterday:

So they had to fill in the appropriate colors, and both of them were able to sound out each color by herself. It's amazing. I remember this with Kevin and Joey, too, when suddenly it clicked, and they were starting to read.

I expect that this is going to be a year of a lot of growth for the girls - not just reading, but in so many other ways, too.

It IS like magic. It feels like now the world is at their feet and waiting for them.
