So I decided to save all of our pictures from Joy school for one post, rather than space them throughout. I didn't take a ton of pictures, but here are a few that I got, and of course, the Joy School Graduation at the end. We had a small group this year, consisting of only three kids, with a younger brother that joined near the end. We supplemented the traditional curriculum with the preschool literacy curriculum from the BYU Education website. We loved the variety and what the letter lesson plans had to offer. It was a fun way to change joy school up a little bit and these kids did awesome.
Not gonna lie, this year was a little tough for our James. He struggled socially and emotionally and therefore with his behavior as well. There were times he didn't want to go, and times he didn't want to participate, even if he did go. Most days were fine, but you never knew when something would set him off, or he wouldn't want to get into the car, or what. But we love him to death and thankfully towards the end, started doing a little better at Joy School, and with life in general. He is learning so much and it was good to spend this year with him and work with him on so many different things. He is a totally unique child. Witty and creative and extremely determined. We love you Jamesy. Congrats on finishing up Joy School!
