Isaac is learning to read and write and he is doing really well trying to sound everything out phonetically. He has some words down by sight now and he is getting much braver with his writing. He loves to write books, letters, and draw pictures. all of this is part of his expanding capacity to write.

Tonight he was drawing a picture and decided he wants to give it to his Aunt Melinda and Uncle Benj. When it was all colored nice, we folded it up and put it in an envelope for them. Then he sounded out everything to write this:

“To Malnda and Bang, From Isaac.”

I think he really sounded it out quite logically, but it sure is going to be hard to resist calling my brother-in-law “Bang” from now on! I think that name actually suits him too.
