You want to write what?

Wow! Two posts in one day. Must be some sort of record for me. THIS is worth posting about. I am so excited about this afternoon that I want to call everyone I know! Benjamin, for the first time in his life, wrote a sentence. Not only that, but he ASKED to do it and came up with the sentence all on his own. Here it is!!

Ben writing his sentence on his dry-erase board.

The sentence says, "Og is happy to hug me." Og is a character on one of his Leappad games. His original sentence was more like a paragraph, but once he got writing, he decided to shorten it to just this. I am so utterly proud of this kid! We made a big deal out of it, praised him like crazy, took pictures, texted them to everyone, showed Grandma and Papa... you name it. He was incredibly proud of himself.
