So far I've taught four weeks of joy school, and he's fit right in. What a difference a year makes. Instead of trying to get my attention, he's sitting on the carpet and raising his hand to participate. It's just darling.
A few more Apple Hill pics:
For the past month two of our joy schoolers have been out of town. It's made taking a quick field trip really easy. Wendy took the kids to the fish hatchery, and for our 'all about animals' lesson, the kids and I took a thirty minute walk around the pet store.
Just this week, we took a trip to Zittle's Pumpkin Patch. Look at those pink cheeks. It was way too hot for October. Oh Fall, where are you??? Fifteen minutes into our walk around the pumpkin patch both boys were asking when we would be done. I kind of felt the same way. Could we please just get out of there? But we lasted through a tour, hay ride and choosing a pumpkin to take home. And I even squeezed a smile out of these guys before they headed to the car without hesitation.
