It has been such a struggle this school year to get Garrett to do any form of writing. I mean it gets to the point sometimes that I yell, take toys away from him, and just flat out get mad at him. He’ll do his math and other worksheets, but anything involving sentences just isn’t going to happen without an ugly struggle. I just can’t really emphasize the struggle that we go through, but (*knock on wood) last week that all changed with the voice mail on my cell phone that I’ve already shared with you. Well, today Garrett came home with two new stories that he had written this week in his school folder. Both were marked with things like “Wow”. “Great job Garrett”, “Glad to see you writing”, “Very informative” and well, you get the picture. I was sooo proud!! He even turned down Family Game Night tonight because he wanted to write another story. OMG I tell you – good thing I was sitting down. I actually called his teacher and discussed this new change in him. She was so excited too! When it was all said and done, he had written two more stories before bedtime, stories that he didn’t have to write mind you! He wrote them just because he “wanted to” he said. Wow! Wow! Wow!
