Sweet Deals.

Today, Maggie & I made a trip of errands. I love taking her with me. Aside from her stench every time you re-enter the vehicle, and the whining you get used to enduring, she's fine company.

Sweet Deal #1: First we hit up the library because I couldn't make it there on my Snow Day the other day (they were also closed, much to my demise). But, I gathered the books I had waiting for me on the "hold" shelf, and headed over to the movie aisle. I think we have some good plots ahead of us this week:)

Sweet Deal #2: After the Library, we raced through all the slushy snow and deep gushing puddles over to ARC. I got a sweet deal on a Coach purse, and the lady at the register reminded me of that as she glared at me--I would guess that she was simply mad because one of her coworkers let this piece of black leather slip buy into the regular stash without being overpriced and placed in the glass case behind the counter.

Sweet Deal #3: Before heading home, we made a final stop at the pet store. We were looking for a seat cover for the truck, and got one for a steal because it was on clearance. Who would have guessed that vinyl buckle-over seat covers weren't top sellers? Well, the cash register didn't recognize the box and tried to charge me double... I didn't let it slide, though. Not with all the great deals I was in for today. Nope, I made sure I got that clearance price.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Homeschool Plans 2017-2018, First Grade and Pre-K Boys | Homeschooling with Truth, Beauty, Goodness

I would like to share with you our plans for our homeschool this year. Codeman is in First grade, while Jesse is an official Pre-K dude. Anna is a wannabee brother and underfoot helper and Titus. He's three months old. Whooofta. I'd just like to repeat that again. Whooooooooofta.

I have read many books, blogs, and journals on the topic of education. Home education, and to be even more specific, sources regarding Classical Education and Charlotte Mason. I truly enjoy these topics and the sources. I am intrigued, and so I continue reading and have now found myself following and chatting with several homeschool moms online in addition to my local and Colorado friends who homeschool. Tim and I were both homeschooled, although my window of homeschooling was only 4 years, I glean much from my mom and Tim's mom. As some podcasts I've listened to refer to us, we are second-generation homeschoolers :) Haha! Well, it helps give me perspective on quality literature and publisher…

Our Day and Week at a glance | Homeschooling

Yearly Homeschool Schedule With a First Grader, Pre-K, Toddler, and Newborn... This is what our days look like with our three boys and a girl at home.

We are shooting for a July/Aug to March/April school year. Now, this is because I've watched our family the last few years, and ALLLL we want to do when the snow is melting in the early spring is get outside. Explore. So, we still can "do school" from Sept through to May or June like "normal" schedules, but I want to TRY to just be done before then. Plus, it's so hot and exhausting by the time July heat and humidity rolls around that we're done weeding, working in the yard, and ready to stay in the cool house for a few hours every day anyway, so this year, it made sense to get started.

This year, 2017-2018, we started school August 1.  Most school calendars account for 32 to 36 weeks of school. I don't have a state requirement yet that makes us do a certain number of school days per year, or even num…
