Camping with some RISK

A couple weekends ago, Tim and I join Jon in the mountains for some much needed (for me and my obsession of fall and the mountains) cool and crisp mountain camping in with the yellow aspens. We had a sweet and totally not illegal camp "site" along the creek (you're supposed to be at least 100 feet off the water and roads in National Forest of Colorado. Ooops? 

Latest and Greatest Family photo. This one made the wall in my super sweet double frame (more on that later) in the Living Room.

Creepy Mossy stuff on the trees all around.

I shot for the first time, and made it dead-center in the middle of my paper-plate target. It was a great impression for the boys.

But, don't get too excited... I made 5 out of 10 onto my target :)

Well, this was just a great overnight, and next day camp trip. For Real. I was just soaking up and loving the whole thing.We hiked, and we played RISK, and we watched the little guy Cooper make a stink about the snow that fell and made his toes too cold, and painful to walk on the rocks, and we teased Maggie and made her super bored in the camper... It was fun. We sang praises for Mr. (little) Buddy the portable Gas heater Jon has. It got cold, but we had our Buddy!


Can't wait to see the new family pic in the new AMAZING double wooden photo frame!!!! :)

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…
