On Monday, July 7, Will sat at the table and drew pictures while I had a quiet time. Let me interpret his drawing, which I knew nothing of until he finished.

Blue = sky. Yellow sun. Yellow vertical line = side of our house (it's sort of yellowish cream in color). Red = Joel's maroon truck. Green = grass. Black = dirt under grass.

WILL = his signature.
IWFU = I love you.
DAD = DAD (without the backwards D).

He sounded out the words and spelled them himself! He's not reading yet so this is huge for us! I tried to teach him to read last fall and we both ended up frustrated. I think he's ready to try again.

And couldn't you just eat him up after drawing something like that?!

Wow! How exciting! Way to go Will...and I'm thinking Daddy might need to frame that one! :)

Precious and genuis all at the same time. That's awesome, Will!

wherever HE leads we'll go said...

That is so great! I bet Joel LOVED it.

I love it!! :) Caleb drew me one day and wrote CRSD above it. (for Christie) Todd had fun with that when Caleb wasn't around. He started beat boxing and said, "Yo yo, Chris-D." :)
