How old are you... 21???
My son Aaron is a pretty remarkable kid.Senior Photo 2011 (haha):
He turned 4 in February of this year. Because he's taller than many of the kids his age, at first glance most people think he's older... like say, 5 or 6. When we tell people how old he is they look at us with disbelief.
But no, he's only 4. But he's a super smart 4 year old. I think he's always been considerably ahead of his peers when it came to learning. He was counting to 15 and knew all of his colors before the age of 2.
While some kids are still learning shapes, colors and the alphabet, Aaron is reading at a 2nd or 3rd grade level. When he's not pretending to be either Iron Man or Buzz Lightyear, you can find him reading entire Berenstein books to his younger sister.
It still amazes me when he picks up a random book and can read it to you, complete with vocal inflections, like he's conducting storytime at the library. What's great is that his interest in learning has influenced his little sister (whom he absolutely adores). She already knows all of her colors and can confidently count to 50. She's only 2 1/2. He's a very helpful kid.
It makes me wonder how having older siblings who are advanced in learning will rub off on Avery. Whatever happens, we have decided to homeschool all three of them. Putting Aaron in Preschool right now would be several steps backward. And we want to give him and the other children every opportunity to excel.What's your opinion of homeschooling?
