Adventures in Homeschooling

We have been homeschooling my son Zachary since he was about 3 or 4 years old.He kept asking "what does that say mama" and it was driving me batty LOL so I started teaching him how to read.He is 6 1/2 now and reads 1-2 levels above his age.He reads everything from store signs to nutrition labels to just about anything that catches his eye-even the little video game books that comes with the games he plays.He LOVES TO READ! I'm so proud of him.Back when I was pregnant with him,I read somewhere that if you want to get your kids into books that you should "clutter" their room with books.So that's what we did.Even before he could read we would often find him sitting quietly in his room just looking at the picture in a book.He still does that-but now I get the pleasure of listening to him reading the book!
