In the past week Landon has taken an interest in sounding out words, figuring out rhyming words and words that start with the same letter. He has become very interested in starting to write letters and words. He is constantly asking how to spell things and writing them in his notebook or making things with letters on them for his friends.
Over the weekend, Lance took Landon with him on some farm calls. As my boys were driving along, Landon was asking Lance how to write "work pants" and how to form the letters he didn't know how to write yet.
When they returned from working this is what I found on Landon's pants:
this is how you write work pants - twice since the first one wasn't good enough
So next time Landon is wanting to write, we need to be sure he is writing on PAPER!
I really tried hard not to laugh. Seriously, the boy was so proud of his work and coming from a kid who had zero, i mean z.e.r.o interest in any type of school just a few short months ago this is progress. I complemented him on his writing and sounding out letters but then gently reminded him that we don't write on our clothing.
And then as any good blogger would do, I had to get some pictures to remember this moment.

Thanks to Melaleuca prespot, there is no more ink on his jeans. YES!
