thousand books

Finished your son’s last book for 1000 Books before Kindergarten and turned in his sheet today. We had started it before you died.

You never got to see him say a two-word utterance. In early June, I’d told you he might have said “boat gone” on our walk looking at the river. You said “that seems like a stretch.”

Now he can say “you read a thousand books and the last book was Grumpy Gloria!”

You should be here. You would have been proud.
