A good first try


Today while playing Colin made his first ever attempt at writing his name (completely unsolicited). I was sitting next to him as he told me that he made a C and now he needed to make an O. After that he just kept going making the L I and N. Clearly the order is wrong, but I was still impressed! I quick grabbed the board away from him so I could take a picture before he erased or wrote over it. The line in the middle of the C was the result of my quick grab while he still had the pen. He has been able to identify and spell his name (thanks mostly to preschool since he sees it all the time)for a while but this is the first time he has ever (in my presence) tried to write it.
