little chewy


 this semester we have a whole bunch of new little faces under our tutoring tree.

i love meeting all the new niños and smothering them with love and kisses.


his name is chewy.

he's quite, but you can tell he hangs on to every last word during tutoring sessions.

he's eager to learn and probably the most serious about his work, out of all the niños.

he was given a sheet of spelling words and immediately started looking over them intently.

as i was busying myself, helping all the other little cries, i noticed chewy wasn't copying the words like he was told.

his sister was bent over him trying to help.

she whispered...  "he can't write."


he looked up at me with his big, milk chocolate chip eyes, that seemed to say, "help me."


*melt


how do you resist such a face?!

i wrote out his list of words in traceable form.

you know lots of lil' dots.

and gave him a little {youcandoit} squeeze.

*puddle


he was so happy and proud when he finished.


i put a big smiley face at the top of his paper 

and wrote,

muy bien

Chewy must feel on top of the world, and it's only the beginning for him :)
