Maggie Reminisce.

as a Verb: Indulge in enjoyable recollection of past events.

I don't know if I'm using it correctly, because I am looking back on Maggies old, brand-new-to-us days where she was ill, disgustingly underweight, and poorly, poorly, poorly over-shaven stomach due to her being fixed, and the reactions she indulged us with because of her many shots/micro-chipping, and new-home transfers after being lost in the wilds of Eastern Colorado Plains Desert in the dead of Winter.

So, I reminisce of Maggie's first days with us, and compare them to her current days with us. 

The OLDEN DAYS of Maggie
February 22, 2009 (her celebrated one-year birthday), we brought the Mag-Dog home from Denver Dumb Friends League (Who received her as a transfer student from the University of Fort Morgan Shelter out in the Boonies of Colorado just two days earlier) after she'd been running wildly through Cactus, Sand, and Snow... It was very sad to see the whites of her eyes like she was some little Hush Puppy.

She was scared and about 20 pounds underweight

Her best trait was that she looked like Clifford the Big Red Dog.

She was so tired after her escapades through deserts, storms, shelters, shots, nasty mean dogs, and having her parts taken from her, that she slept all the time.

She didn't even know she was paralyzing the neighbors when we'd walk by. They'd always wonder if we'd done that to her.  NO! Why would anyone ever shave their dog's belly clear up to their eyebrows for a little 3 inch incision?! We just didn't know WHY?

Well, the next day, we had to go to work. and school. and continue on with our lives. SO we locked her up in her crate, and left.

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…
