This morning marked the start of joy school for the year. We hosted the event at our home, kicking it off with some fun. Our theme this week is "All About Me," the letter is "F," and our shape is an oval. I am starting a blog for our joy school this year so check over there for details! Hopefully at the end of the year we can give the kids blog books of our joy school year.
Here is Amelia starting her first day of joy school, year two. I made her outfit two weeks ago and held back the tremendous urge to post photos early. She totally rocked the pleated skirt, appliqued shirt, and hat. I love this fabric line from Timeless Treasures. Reminds me of fall, school, and hot chocolate.
Alison took Phillip for me (major thanks) and then invited Mia over to play afterwards until 4 pm. Everett was not so happy today. It made joy school a little challenging. He ended up crying for about an hour since he would not nap, eat, or settle down. He was not happy the rest of the day either so maybe he was not feeling well. I think we will survive joy school! This week I am investing in the Rusty and Rosy reading program by the Waterford Institute. Jacob Lance used it and practically learned to read in preschool! They also have a cool looking DVD teaching the letter sounds that I want.
