What a fun morning we have had. Joel's been waking up earlier because of the brighter mornings, so we were all up and getting breakfast going by 7. Joel ran all around the house in his diaper (which is super cute) and Justin read to me from The Gospel Primer as I made some muffins and maple sausage. After breakfast, Justin settled on the couch to begin his day of seminary study. Joel, though, wasn't about to be left out. He brought over one of his books and settled next to his dad for some study too. I had to pull out the camera for this!
Also, we have a chin-up bar in our doorway, and Joel is determined that if daddy does it, I need to do it to. He's got down exactly what he needs to do, even down to the grunts as he pulls up and down. And we think little kids don't notice things...ha!
By 8:45, Joel was wiped out and ready for a nap. I'm so thankful for my precious family, and for the blessing of a morning to be together and enjoy this gift!
