The Superhero Book

Elijah writes in his journal every day and we try to pick something to type and "publish" every so often. Today was publishing day and he chose a little story he'd written about a super hero. He typed his story himself, picked out a picture to accompany it and printed it out. Micah did the same, typing the story himself with a little extra help from me with spelling. I typed Isaiah's story for him, but I typed it word for word as he told it to me. The video is Elijah reading their finished product to everyone.

That is so cute. It's really cute how much pride you can see on their faces as Elijah is reading the book. What a fun activity!
