6 Inches! And growing like a weed... Well, more like a tomato this week.

"Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato." --from

19 Weeks (in Winter Park). I feel great, and can't fit into my pants anymore unless they are unbuttoned and I've got a Belly Band on :)
I am feeling the kicks and squirms more and more each day. Tim can officially feel it, if he's checking at the right time, and it is just a wonderful feeling. We're blessed to be able to enjoy this part of pregnancy without complaint. I'm not sleeping much at nights, but am able to rest during the days I'm worn out when the girls are down, too. Our registry is up at, now. And, I've got my eyes peeled for the bigger items (from the Baby Things page here on my blog).  
We're constantly amazed at the Lord's provision for us... like the Sienna we were able to buy that is reliable and so "cool," even the D's girls LOVE IT. Fin asks, "Are we gonna ride in the band-car, Amy?" She likes the "band" (van) quite a bit! I think her and Sel like it mostly because they don't have to have me help them into it... they can climb up there all by themselves. Praise God for the good He is and does for us!

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…
