Reading is also very important to us--I've read to the boys nearly everyday since they were born. Eamon has excelled in reading this past year, working his way from Dr. Seuss in the fall of 2011 to reading the first Harry Potter as well as the Redwall series this year. His teacher recently informed me that he is reading at least at the sixth grade level. He's pretty amazing!
I really hope he never loses interest in what he loves. And of course, the artist in me hopes he never stops drawing and being creative.
