I am just so proud of Matthew. I just have to brag a bit. Yesterday I told him about Barnes and Nobles summer reading program. It's really neat. After reading 8 books he will be able to pick from a list, one free book. He will have the opportunity to get 2 free books this summer. Not only that but he will be entered to win a free autographed book. It's one of Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House books. We only have a few more to read and then we would have read all 37 books. So I thought he would be thrilled.
He wasn't. I could tell all he was thinking was "I'm going to have to read all summer!"
So tonight, after he was in bed for about 1/2 hour, he comes downstairs. He has a book in his hand. I wasn't quick to say "Get back to bed." and praise God I wasn't because he hands the book to me. Then proceeds to get the B&N paper and a pen. He writes the info needed and I sign it.
I was so excited. He chose to read a book tonight for the summer reading program.
Then he came back downstairs with another book!
So, my heart is melting. All my worries are gone. All my prayers are being answered. Matthew even told me tonight that he enjoys reading!
It's amazing when you give things to God. I resolved the fact that I am who I am and I teach the way I teach. All apart of His plan. Glory!
Just had to share :)
