"A walk with Papa"

The magic of a child learning to read is no less inspiring the second time around.

Today it finally clicked and M started reading Thai with fluency.  I'm so proud of his effort. He stayed focused and wouldn't quit until he had read the whole thing.  The book he chose? "A Walk With Papa".  So appropriate for what this step will mean to their relationship.

Not-to-be-overlooked nugget of irony: school was cancelled today because of toxic smoke from a nearby landfill fire.  Hmm... 


  1. That's awesome! I love reading and don't understand people who hate reading.

    Umm.... toxic smoke near a school does not sound good.
