Well, I don’t really like the word “bragging” so much, but I do like the idea of sharing the good things our children do, and if that’s bragging, then that’s what I’m doing today!

And I have an excuse – today is the weekly “Let’s Hear It For the Boys” link-up over at The MOB Society!

Let’s start with this guy…

Big J has completed 120 days of school and is always looking to learn more! I’m continually amazed at amount of knowledge already packed into that brain of his!

This week, we celebrated great success on his unit math test. And every day, he wants to learn about different animals – even after school is done for the day! I just pray that God will show us how to keep up with his apetite for learning!

And then there’s this guy…

I can’t get enough of Little J’s baby face and those dimples, but this week he showed us just how grown up he is when he started READING.

Oh friends, I was NOT ready for that at all.

I mean, he’s known his letters for a while and has been working on letter sounds in preschool, but putting it altogether?! Whoa.

And now he wants to read and sound out words all the time! Thank goodness for sites like StarfallΒ and apps like Smarty Pants School that he loves to do while Big J and I are doing his school work! Those sites and apps have fun activities that grow with him as learns to read more and more!

Look at the smile on his face! Priceless!

And so goes the life of parents – wondering where our little boys went, but so proud of the young men they are becoming!

{By the way, we took them to McDonald’s – their choice – to celebrate their learning achievements this week! Always fun to do something special in the middle of the week :)}

How about a little bragging on your kiddos today? What have they done to make you smile this week?

{If you have boys, head on over to the MOB Society to brag on them! Lots of prizes up for grabs on the link-up today!}
