I am so proud of my daughter, we worked really hard for the last 100 days (thank you Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons!) and tonight, my daughter read to me before bedtime. She read all 63 pages of Green Eggs and Ham, and only had to sound out 2 words.

For the first time yesterday, she came into my bedroom and said "Mommy, I think that I just read something all by myself!" and sure enough, she started reading the story out of her Barbie coloring book to me.

It feels so rewarding to be over the hurdle of reading with her! I CAN homeschool! lol ;)

Congratulations to you both! That's great...and Green Eggs and Ham is such a fun book, too.

Agreed!
My daughter's birthday is in 2 weeks and she asked for a booklight so she can read in the dark :) I hope she always loves to read!
