Grandma Vi


In memory of our dear Viola Elvira Isaacson Valo, our treasure.

My grandma Vi, 85, passed away peacefully while at home Wednesday afternoon...Blessed to be in the company of her Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. So far... Grandpa George is fine, but at a huge loss. 

My mom's sister Jane & Keith Olson and their kids have all been there at Grandpa's side, as well as mom's brother, Byron. 
 
Grandpa's wonderful Woodbury neighbors have stepped into help as needed ( Mom just took him to a Neighborhood Christmas party last week, so she saw how they all love my dad!)
We are currently hoping to plan on a Sat Service at St. Peter Lutheran Church (Afton) near their home.
 
Pray for peace, for safe and timely travel, and especially for my grandpa George's peace at his sudden loneliness over the loss of the love of his life of 63 years.

Praise the Lord
as He is in our Daily lives ... 1Peter 5:6-7

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…
