learning to read and to write

Just an hour left for some homework before we go to have dinner with our friends. My sons are very motivated right now because they know the evening will be fun with their friends. So without nagging they make their homework and it is amazing to see how much they have already learnt these two weeks. One of our sons starts learning to read and to write. In the beginning you think he will never learn but suddenly there is some interest and he shows us how good he can read some words. They make large steps the first weeks at school.
