Today I am grateful that I got to witness Baylor step out of his comfort zone a little bit last night. He has such a wonderful imagination and is always weaving elaborate stories, but he never likes to write them down himself. Last night that changed and Baylor hand-wrote his first story! Here it is, illustration included:
Baylor was pumping until he heard his dad say, "Baylor"
It took quite a while for him to write this, and he needed a bit of help on the spelling (and with a little trouble with the starting letters to "until") but he did this all on his own. (I did show him the correct punctuation for quotes ... I figure it's never too early to start learning proper English, right?) Oh, and the pumping he is referring to is pumping water ... he is giving his sister a Lego set for her birthday that includes a water pump, so it's on his mind right now, I guess.
The picture is of him sleeping with his Star Wars light saber shirt on, though I don't know why as it doesn't seem to pertain to the story.
I'm so proud of my budding author!
Have a wonderful day!
