I will follow you...

Follow you wherever you may go? Well, will you follow me? It would bring joy to my heart to know that you are reading this blog, keeping up with us kastencrazies. In order to "follow" this blog(which, remember would make me more glad than my eating an entire box of Nutty Bars, or a whole package of E.L. fudge cookies ALL by myself while reading an excellent historical fiction by Janette Oke or Laurraine Snelling in front of the fireplace on a cool and crisp fall day...) please go up to the top of this page, or all the way to the bottom if you want to, and click FOLLOW this blog. Use whatever account you want, or whatever name you have for commenting, and just click it. Click it or ticket, right?

Well, when you follow a blog, it really requires no commitment from you, and, unless you access your dashboard, you really won't see any change... There, you will see any updates that I, or other blogs that you may chose to follow, have made to their blogs. And, most helpfully on this end, it gives us a good base for seeing our audience, and to know if you are reading, or if we need to send you newsletters via snail mail.... Which I actually won't do for you... Just to keep you up on the up an up.


For those of you who are just itching to buy my Christmas present for this year, please take note: I can't wait to get a Canon Digital SLR. The T2i kit with an extra lens would be great, thanks:)

Happy Birthday, baby boy! | Titus is one

Last year, just after midnight on the morning of Mother's day, this little tyke was born to us! He was a mere 7 pound, 10 ounce baby with fuzzy hair, puffy eyes, and just a perfectly strong boy. He has elfin charm paired with tender kisses. The strawberry blonde fuzz continues to grow up and out, a lighter shade today. We most often find him wanting (whining) to be held, or seeking mischief. He already wants to do what C, J, and A are into... and it causes him many tumbles and tears when he can't keep up or isn't allowed to participate.

We are celebrating this mini man today, on his first birthday! Happy Birthday Titus Andrew!

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…

Happy New Year 2018! | Family Life, Health, and Commitments.

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
