I love it when kids are first learning how to read and write. Addie started reading on her own this summer but then you take it to the next level. Sounding out the words can only get you so far cause the English language doesn't sound at all like the words are spelled. You have to memorize the words that are spelled in a crazy way or you won't ever say them right. I will admit that though I have an easy time with proper grammar and sentence structure I still have to look up words allot cause I can't remember how to spell them. I saw this picture Addie drew and I thought it was too cute.
