And, yes, I said
Now that I'm on days, we had to find someone to watch the children full time. It was MUCH harder than I had ever thought. First, because we were having a lot of behavioral problems at the time, and I was deathly afraid to allow anyone to watch my kids again. Second, was the cost issue. We solved that by having Eric, whom I already trusted, come to the house to watch Lucas and Elizabeth, and Zachary if school wasn't in session.
And since December 1, there have been several times that my heart has melted for this young man and I thank God that we were so lucky to have him.
This is one of those times. Since Eric has started watching the kids, he has worked with Lucas on his letters, numbers, math, and reading. Lucas is now reading at a kindy level and doing the same math problems that Zachary is doing. They do fun things together to learn the words. This "comic book" was something that Luke and Eric put together. Lucas wrote a couple of words that he knew and then illustrated a lot of the pictures. Eric did the rest. What came out of that culmination is a fantastic little kung-fu comic book that Lucas can practice his reading on that he created! How cool is that?
Oh, and I absolutely love the ending. So enjoy! (I know I did!)
