Parental pride and transitions

Boo stayed home with LOML today while I went off to my stress test: she was not feeling very well, so we kept her home.
When I returned, she was just about to finish reading a book.  A chapter book.  A chapter book with very few pictures, and 100+ pages.  Which she'd read in a little over two hours.  After a few questions, it was clear that she had actually read it, absorbed the story, and loved it.

This is a huge transition: she'd been able to do this for a little while: as a first grader reading at a fourth grade level (or so her teacher tells us) we knew this was possible: but to see it happen was lovely!

Yours, amazed at her transitions as a reader, and equally amazed by her brother,
