Luci started Joy School a few weeks ago. She loves it! Although, we can't get much out of her as to why. She usually briefs us on the most exciting parts of the day, "I had a snack, and I played..." We know she loves it because she is always anticipating school days. She goes twice a week for two and a half hours. I didn't know it until the first day, but I do not like letting her go! It was a big eye opener to me of how fast they really do grow up. Elijah and I miss her so much while she's gone. Okay, maybe just I do. Elijah actually loves the one-on-one time. He has really let loose on his little banter, especially in the car. It's amazing how much he's started talking the last few weeks. My faves are: Sa-sha (salsa), Bwe-py (breakfast), och (ouch, also means knife), meh (amen), pop-pop (for my dad, and popcorn). It's so fun to have baby talk around, we didn't get much of that with Luci-- just full sentences, and lots and lots of questions :)

Speaking of school! Jacob and I came upon this the other day. They are free independent study classes from BYU. I want to take ALL of them!! Especially the gardening ones, the family life ones, and the math ones... yes I really need help in that area...

Remember the days when painting with pudding were "educational"...

("Mwah-ha-ha joy school is so amazing" )

One of the few strawberries from our garden this year 

Dried peaches, canned peaches, peach sa-sha, peach cheesecake... we love peaches!


(This one is for Pop Pop, this is how Elijah smiles... )

And this is his facial expression for pretty much everything... whoa
