Kastenbaby at the 20 Weeks Ultrasound

We are blessed to announce that our baby is healthy! Of course, we constantly covet your prayers as we continue on through this growth and development process. We didn't (and aren't going to) find out the sex of our baby... So, we don't know :)
We Do Know:
Heart Rate of 150 bpm
All fingers, toes, bones, organs
Heart functions very healthy, and has all parts
A Big head: measured a little earlier due date than other parts (a Nordstrom?)
We have "a squirmer on our hands" according to the ultrasound tech.
Mom is healthy and feeling great.

Hello little baby. I see you in mommy's womb and we think you are already a cutie. Both Grandpa and I are looking forward to holding you and finding out just how wonderful you smell, how deep your eyes are when you look at us, and even to hear you cry. We wonder how much hair you have, if your fingers and toes are long and if you are a boy or girl. I guess you are keeping it all secret. That's what God calls the place you are living in, "the secret place." We are so glad that you are safe and warm and we will be patient and wait for God to continue knitting you together. We love you.
Grandpa & Grandma
PS We got you a really fun toy, just like your little buddy Ben has. Ben thinks it's great to chew on, so you probably will too.

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…
