Hendrik can read!

Recently we purchased the "Your Baby Can Read" DVD set. We have been watching it fairly faithfully with the kids and today I decided to try out the flash cards that came along with the set. Hendrik (who is 2 1/2) read the words "dog", "nose", and "clap". I was amazed. I didn't think he would have picked up words so quickly. I'm so excited that he's learning to read at such a young age. We are big book lovers at our house and it was a favourite pastime for me as a child. I have so many books saved up for our little ones once they are old enough to read them! :)

Water bomber flyby

Today we went to watch the water bomber flyby they hold every year over the Slave River.
