Amazing Power

I think having the ability to read is one of the greatest powers a person can posses. I love reading and sometimes I find myself amazed at the fact that little symbols on a piece of paper can create such incredible images or ideas in my brain. I love the fact that if I do not know something or how to do something I can simply find the answers, read them and empower myself to learn new abilities or knowledge.

It truly boggles my mind that there are people in the world who do not know how to read. Having the power to read is something I hope I never take for granted.

Maxfield is in the early stages of developing his power. I really enjoy watching him as he sounds out a word and then recognizes it in his mind.

Here is video of Max sharing his power with Wyatt. I am so glad I got to capture TWO very proud father moments. The first is Max reading. The second, well, just watch.

Looks like they picked a great book to share...as well as one or two other things! I'm also proud of him for not snacking on it. It looked touch and go there for a second!

It looked to me like eggs and ham aren't the only green things Wyatt doesn't like.

Way to go Maxfield. Reading is awesome.

Did he abstain because of the green or because it wasn't the right time? ;)

I *heart* Dr. Seuss.

I was around for your teenage years, and I thought that you, the viper, and Rogelieu were picture guys. The rest of us were word guys.

Kind of like Americans vs. Nationals

You look like a monkey.

I'm glad to see that my kids aren't the only ones who pick while reading.
