Spectacular Speaker

 Tuesday was a big milestone day for Kaitlin!  She graduated out of the Speech Therapy program!! 
 Kaitlin has been working on her speech since she was 18 months old.  First we had a speech therapist come to the home.  Then when she turned three, she went to speech school.  Since she started Kindergarten, she has been pulled out of the class once a week to work on her articulation.   Her therapist called me about a month ago to say she thought Kaitlin was ready to graduate and for me to listen closely for a month to see if I agreed.  Her last hurdle was the "th" sounds and she was hammering them at home.  Kaitlin has worked so hard to get all of her sounds.  She was always a favorite among her teachers for her work ethic and sweet nature.  Mrs. Sally said she tried to think of ways to keep her, but she is just too spectacular of a speaker!
We had to celebrate this special occasion.  Kaitlin requested breakfast for dinner and her favorite chocolate cake.  Daddy brought home balloons and flowers.  To prove the point that she has full command of the English language, Kaitlin didn't stop talking all night. :)

We are so happy for you and proud of all your hard work Kaitlin!
