The past two weeks I could tell it was happening, he was getting it.  He would cut others off to get at me, just so he could read to me, as many books and as fast as he could.  A life long, true lover of books and he was finding the key to an entire new world.

Today, after reading his third book to me in a row, books he had never read before, in a perfectly fluent manner, he looked up at me and said, “It just happened Michelle, right now!  I can read!”

I told him that he had to go tell Sarah and then I ran to the back office and immediately emailed his mom (in what other school do you get this kind of play by play?)

This magic that happens, never gets old and always takes my breath away.
