I Caved

I told Jake he couldn't read the fourth Harry Potter book until he turned nine.  Starting with number four, these books get steadily more intense and scary (and I LOVE them).  I just didn't think he was ready to deal with some of things in this next book.

But this afternoon Jake told me the story of the Iliad.  And when he calmly and matter-of-factly described - in great detail, mind you - the death of Hector, I started to rethink my previous stance.

I caved.  And I don't think we'll be hearing much from Jake for the next few days.

Gavin finished #4 a few days ago and was so anxious for #5 that he read #1 again. So great to see them reading!
