Little N is learning to read and write. She has recently started to sound out words and read through some of the beginner reading books we have. She is also doing a very good job communicating on paper. She was listening at church, which is not always obvious when her head and fingers and busy coloring. The pastor told everyone to "Pass the peace!" and we all stood up to shake hands with our neighbors. She decided that she wanted to write it down after taking a moment to sound out the words and the back of the prayer request form served her purpose. She wrote it down on three different sheets before I realized what she had done and started to pass notes in church.
