Having Visitors, Being a Visitor, Having Visitors...

Well, the month of May-hem has begun... just two days early. I LOVE these next few weeks. Although it is CRAZY, I am so looking forward to seeing so many of our family (and friends) that are coming! Today, Tim's mom Suzy is flying in, to spend some time with her boys, and I get to see her a couple days, too... If she would have come yesterday, she would have believed the weather's generosity : it was like 80 yesterday. But, because she gets here tonight, she'll join in on our new weather option : Snow and Rain.

Next in Line::: MONTANA! I head out Saturday morning with our team of 5 eighth graders, and 3 adults. We would love your prayers for
-safe driving
-no problems with the rental suburban
-good weather: we'll be out building a fence most days
-Relationships to be built, kept, and maintained in accordance with already-existing connections
-the LORD's will for each member of our team to be made clear this week... lots of growing and stretching will happen in our hearts
-our bodies and souls to be healthy (one stayed home sick today)

Then, we've got the fam coming in for the second annual DeBoer-Kids Graduate! They'll hail from the Midwest and Washington to celebrate as Jordan and Joy (Go JJ Express!) graduate! There will be eating, rejoicing, hiking, and even George and Vi are wheeling out here with Aunt Jane. It is a big shabang. Not as big as last year's which included the wedding for JJ Express, but it is big.

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

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…
