It's been about a year since I last bragged about Max's reading skills and I'm happy to report he is still going strong.
We just got his interim report card today and he has so far garnered an A in reading. Not bad for a kid in first grade who could barely read, who is now in 5th grade he is very happily reading The Hobbit.
I'm so grateful for his first grade teacher that recognized it was more of a case of boredom, nothing she could offer at his reading level interested him. She found us an excellent tutor and over the summer before 2nd grade she was able to get him moving. It was money and time well spent.
