The little things in life, can often be monumental ...

Today was a BIG day for Jonathan, a day to be marked down in history ....He wrote his full name all by himself!!!
He wrote it without tracing, or someone standing over him coaching him! It may have taken him 13 years and 4 months to accomplish it but HE DID IT....and we couldn't be more proud!

This year Jonathan has just taken off and excelled in ways that I cannot believe and it brings me to tears seeing him achieving such goals/task. This school year we had a change in his teacher, and I truly believe he needed the change ...a fresh start with a teacher that had some new ideas, Elizabeth his sister. Jonathan adores Elizabeth, to him she does no wrong. So, placing these 2 together was a definite match. What a joy it is to see the interaction between them, lots of learning going on...bonding and memories being made. I count it a blessing to have Elizabeth helping teach with me this year.

Time seem to go and change quickly, in recent days I have thought much about the season in life we are in. Each season is different, but I must say I'm really enjoying this season ...our life and house is full with Bigs and Littles!
We are greatly blessed!

Did you have a party to celebrate? Some yummy cupcakes maybe? :-)

Way to go Jonathan!! I took me probably that long to learn to spell my name as a child because it was so long!

Love that sweet Elizabeth is helping. The best thing I did for our schooling was have the olders help the youngers with subjects. Matching right personalities makes for such a blessing.

Way to go Mama! ~Cinnamon

PRAISE GOD!!! I think a lot of prayer has helped, too! He still has many milestones ahead to achieve and may reach some of them even quicker now.
