I love me a good sleepover!

The days of being in fifth grade staying up way too late while watching movies and eating junk food were alive and well this weekend! We had our Second Annual Fab Five Reunion since graduating together from CCU :) My girlfriends Kelsey, Melissa, and Kristen flew in from Des Moines, Piitsburgh, and Oklahoma City, respectively, while Kaitlyn drove up from Colorado Springs. After picking everyone up from their flights, we all headed out to the snowy mountains in the dark.

Driving up to our destination--a glamorous mansion of a cabin--up in Frisco, we chatted about the basics, the nitty-gritty, and the gooey. It was like middle school all over again, but with a greater knowledge of our Lord's Goodness and Might. By time we arrived and unpacked, we slipped into our comfy clothes and chewed gummy worms while each of us talked over the others trying to voice-in. Boy, when you get five girls together only once year, it doesn't matter how much you've "caught up" on the phone, email, or facebook in the past months, all that matters is that you just want to listen and to be heard, all at once. It is a crazy lack of sync, but so just the foundation of who we are... Albeit nuts. It was a wonderful weekend of laughing, crying, shouting, whispering, and chatty chat chatting! Seriously, WONDERFUL!

Add Melissa's to-die-for salsa and chips, some breakfast burritos, lots of tea, delicious and fancy Italian, a few more gummy worms, and you are all set for three days with four other girls to last you until the next reunion... Which for us, will be June, for the Bauthier Wedding (Melissa and Steve in PA) where we will all be bedecked in Wysteria colored Bridesmaids Dresses as our dear friends unite themselves and with the Lord! We love weddings!
Wonderful Aprons, made by our dear Melissa soon-to-be-Bauthier!

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…
