I really was not sure if Simeon would read before Kindergarten like Josh and Rory. He is our more normal kid and we love that. We love that he loves to play with toys instead of figuring out the workings of a neuron. He could have gone to school this year because of the wack California start date but we held him back because he needed more time. We do a preschool co op with 4 other friends and it was magical how he started to read so quick. He can sound out most words and he likes to do it too. Such a proud Mama Moment!!
