Shh

Keep this to yourselves.  If you know us IRL, don't say anything about it, it makes her nervous.  Ready?

Sarah is a beginning reader.  She can read about 20 short a words, very slowly.  She gets frustrated really easily, but she can do it.  Her latest word? Jack.  As in Jack in the Box.  I wrote it down today.  She sounded it out and smiled when she put it together as Jack. 

Don't congratulate her or let her know you know.  Some day soon, she will amaze you with her reading skills.
