All who wander are not lost. They may simply be 11 years old and having the time of their life!

Last weekend we visited Jean and hung out with her 4 year old son Mateo. He pulled out a book and started reading it. He pointed to each word as he read it and even had to sound out words like 'picked' because he wasn't simply memorizing the book. I was so impressed, and so proud. Leo was impressed too, "He can read and he's only 4. I am 5 and I can't even read!".
I guess it made a big impression on him, so yesterday he pulled out a book (an old Weekly Reader book from Kristin) and read two sentences. I'm really happy for him. Nothing like peer pressure!
