    My oldest should be asleep, but instead he is reading.

    He just called down to Daniel and I and said that he liked reading because he gets to learn new things.

    He then proceeded to inform us that orcas are the largest member of the oceanic dolphin family. :D Who knew?!

    I am so proud of him.

    My son does the same thing. He even reads in the car. The one time I asked him to put down the book and buckle himself in, he responds, "What would you prefer? That I buckle my seatbelt or expand my knowledge base?" How does a mom respond to that? It is great that your son loves to read!

    This middle/high school media specialist is too. Keep assuring him not everything is on the Internet!

    That is so great that he is finding reading. That is something that will stay with him for the rest of his life.

    I would also be thrilled. It's so awesome to see a child read.
