At Home

Here's a peek at what goes on at our home while I'm out flying. I don't even know how Joy found time to take these pictures in the midst of all the "activities." I don't know how she does it! Last week the twins officially dove headfirst into the crazy, "I have no fear of anything that could kill me, and I'd like to climb everything that doesn't climb me first," stage of toddlership. They encourage one another in their bad ideas, and seem to continually try to one-up each other with X-game style climbing up the window grates to the top of the 11 foot ceilings, continually climbing out of the crib to a crashing, head-busting landing on the tile floor, etc. Trust me, Joy and our helper have their hands full!! Below, the latest sport in town: full-contact (apparently including biting) crib wrestling. Tanner has now mastered not only the art of climbing out of his pack-n-play, but also the ability to climb up and into Tyler's crib. The promise of mischevious fun seems to outweight the consistent, impending discipline on the backside.

Besides being busy keeping up with the twins, Joy also homeschools the other three. These pics were taken during art class last week.

The kids are studying about ancient Egypt right now in History. They made mummies out of oranges for one of their projects. Pretty fun!

There's always other activities going on as well. Lately Hannah has been practicing for the Christmas program that she's going to be a part of with her Indonesian Sunday school class. the teachers are all-to-excited to come over to the house to give her "extra" training. Truthfully, I think they just like hanging out over here. It's fun to see how many ways Joy and the kids are involved in little ministries around our neighborhood.

I love the play-by-play commentary. Tanner and Tyler are certainly a handful. School looks like a lot of fun!!

Hi Dave--I used to read Joy's blog and continue praying for you all. It's fun to pop over once in a while to see how you and your sweet family are doing. Blessings!

I love the pictures of the grandkids. Thanks for taking the time to post them with all the interesting information about what is happening at your house.

The pictures are awesome! Just by the smiles on their faces - it's obvious the twins are up to no good. School looks like it would be a great place to be in those pictures.
