It’s True…

Kids grow up too fast!

It’s true… the older you get the faster the time goes by.

We recently let Rhett set up an email address. {There is that growing up too fast thing again} My thinking was this was a great way to encourage him to want to read and practice writing. Of course this comes with a major set of rules. The good is certainly outweighing the bad. I get little emails like these. =)

{daddy helped with the spelling}

Yes, I will take his sweet messages as long as I can!

I realize that I have written the last few posts about Rhett, lol, sorry about that!

This one is really intended to give you some ideas of how to encourage your child to use those skills they learn in school. When it comes to my boys, sitting and writing just for fun isn’t something they jump to do. So trying to find things that interest them and encourage them to read and write can be challenging. Rhett has a few pen pals which is so great! He is so excited every time he gets to check his email and has a message. =)

Oh and one more little thing about Rhett…

He won 1st place in his first tournament of the year, over the weekend! It was his first medal ever and he could not be more excited! What a great moment it was!

What a great idea! I am sure that every note you will get from him will help to make all of those rules (and the time it takes to enforce them) worth while! Thanks for sharing about Rhett. He is precious!

You’re allowed to brag on Rhett all you want!! And I absolutely LOVE that he has a little email account to practice. Y’all are raising those kiddos right, no doubt in my mind. :)

oh my goodness, that is adorable! I have set Sarah up with e-mail addresses before but she always forgets the login info because she doesn’t use e-mail much :-) What does Rhett use his for? I have trouble coming up with age-appropriate reasons to encourage Sarah to use hers.

I tried to find close friends that we felt comfortable with them sharing emails. Also my husband and I send him things. Rhett loves sharing funny photos.
