IWFUDAD.

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?!

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." :)
