Dawson has been practicing counting a lot recently. He's so cute when he counts because there are times he's so excited that he practically yells all the numbers. And whenever he reaches his high number (usually 20) he'll clap for himself.

When we were at the playground one day there was a hopscotch game drawn in chalk on the basketball court. Dawson had the greatest time jumping from square to square and counting all the numbers. After that he wanted me to draw "squares" for him at home. So now he's become very proficient in counting to 20, has extended his counting to 30, and even learned how to count to 100 by 10's - and this all came from having fun playing hopscotch. What a great, fun teaching tool.
