Then we did the phrases and, finally, the sentences.
He was making me laugh so hard!
Especially when he acted out things like "Compost pile"

(He has a very expressive face!)
He was amazed when I told him he did an entire level (should be a week's worth) and he wasn't even tired.
He said, "I think I should do that every time!"
Yes, I would have to agree :)
It made it fun for me, too!
