Collin read his first book!! Hooray!!!

Okay, before you get too excited you must remember that he's a preschooler and this is his FIRST book ever so there is still a lot of sounding out and prompts from momma. :) I was just proud of him. It was 25 pages and by the time Paul started recording it he was getting tired. His school (K12) has a summer challenge to read one book a week so that's what we're going to try to do. In this video, Paul was standing on the other side of the room when he started recording it so it's hard to understand. Around 2:30 he comes over and sits next to us so you may just want to skip to there. You also get to see Collin get frustrated a few times. Poor little guy thinks everything should be perfect so if he gives the wrong sound then he gets mad at himself. I was just excited and had to brag even though no one else really cares and the movie will be completely dull to anyone else, I am proud and have watched it many times already. hehe! I love the ending where he turns to Paul and said, "Any more?" with a big grin on his face. LOL! It's perfect!! This is the first time he's seen many of these words too. Okay, I'll stop talking about it and just post the video. =o)
