Look what Amy gets to wake up to each morning!

Listen closely to what Jonas says as soon as Amy opens the door. 

Since I have posted some of the other school pictures I thought I'd give the twins equal screen time.
They are 2.4 years old and they started JOY SCHOOL last week.
One of Amy's friends from church also has twins right about the same ages as Jonas and Téa.
So Amy and her friend take turns having Joy School in their home.
Take a peek at last week's beginnings.

I love the fact the other mother was in Joy School when she was little. Her Mom had 7 children and did it for all 7 of them when they were toddlers.

If you are interested in what Joy School is about, go here.

Hi, Jill, I just wrote you a fairly long comment which disappeared when I tried to publish it. Arrgh....
The jist was that I love Linda Eyre's book A Joyful Mother of Children (not the updated version, however) and her other books. Teaching Children Joy resulted in "Joy Schools" for preschoolers. I still have that book. I just bought A Mother's Book of Secrets, which she co-wrote with her grown daughter, a photographer. Really nice.

I did Joy school with my girls and loved it! So glad Amy is doing it with the sweet girl in our ward...they are both incredible moms!

They continue to be adorable.

I loved the video. It is so cute. Jonas talks so plainly, it was easy to hear him say "Goodmorning Mama" How sweet was that? Chilren are so much fun at that age. They look so cute in the pictures too. I think they are enjoying the Joy School.

Oh that video was just so cute!!!! Rachel and I are here in bed watching it and Rachel is just giggling. Whet a fun thing to have on video! The twins are adorable as ever. I did joyschool with Jessica and Katelyn. It's a great program and teaches so many wonderful, social skills for a lifetime. Perfect curriculum for their age.

I love how Jonas greets his mom, and then asks if dad is up. They both are so cute! I love those tent covers for the cribs. I wished I would have had them when my kids were babies. I did Joy School with my last one and loved it. Thanks for giving the twins their equal screen time. I always love seeing them.

They are so cute. Tea's crustiness reminds me so much of Peyton so it makes me like her!

It's been nice catching up with you and your family here, Jill!
After I dropped Jayden at school I came home and sat here for a few hours before it was time to pick him up, and then I came back to watch two videos that you posted (very moving, so touching, and such wonderful life lessons).

I can't believe how big the twins are getting, and Cami looks like such a big girl now too!
I loved touring the new apartments (and they both have laundry rooms! Wonderful! Especially with newborns!)
Little Richie is so adorable, and so alert! I loved every picture and every video (especially the one of Karen rocking him), and I'm so glad the little family is home together now.

I enjoyed reading all about Family Camp (then and now), and I enjoyed the family vacation photos, and my heart was pounding with the video of Logan on the roof!

What am I forgetting? Oh, yes! I loved Jonas singing! And Tea's visit with you (so sweet about the skirt that you bought for her), and also, Congratulations! to all on the arrival of little Calvary Kerry too (LOVE her name!).

Also, very touching stories linked to some of your posts, the faith that exudes from others is really inspirational to me.

I have tons more I could say, but I'll be here all day if I do that!
I've missed visiting here so this was nice, and I'll try to come more often now.
Love to you,
PS ~ I copied the cookie recipe (Mia loves anything peanut butter!), and I'm going to show Jayden the cute 'Marcel The Shell' video now!
