Softball at Clement Park

This month, Tim started playing in a competitive softball league with a few guys he knows from church and some more that he just met. So far, they won their first game 14-13, and their second game 20-5. I'd like to say they have a good start to this early spring season...

On Tuesday nights, they play at Clement Park on one of the two main Softball fields over by the batting cages/Columbine side of the park. It has been fun for me (and Maggie) to come watch... You remember how ridiculous me & my pals could get at church softball games in High School, right?

*to refresh your memory, we'd cheer dorky things like:
"Let's Go, Milaca Free! One, and two, and three, Wee-Wee!"

Tim's AWESOME triple. He did great!
Anyway, I don't have any friends, or in essence of this last game, ZERO other fans on the bleachers except for me and the dog (and that's for both teams combined!). But, I'll give it to the boys that it was WINDY! and SUPER SUNNY until it set behind the mountains. Yikes. It was like REALLY REALLY WINDY. My friends at 9News called it Gale Force winds on Tuesday. Which is so sad and difficultly drawing out the wild fires which are still firing in Golden. :(

Maggie, Blowing away in the WIND!

Happy Birthday, baby boy! | Titus is one

Last year, just after midnight on the morning of Mother's day, this little tyke was born to us! He was a mere 7 pound, 10 ounce baby with fuzzy hair, puffy eyes, and just a perfectly strong boy. He has elfin charm paired with tender kisses. The strawberry blonde fuzz continues to grow up and out, a lighter shade today. We most often find him wanting (whining) to be held, or seeking mischief. He already wants to do what C, J, and A are into... and it causes him many tumbles and tears when he can't keep up or isn't allowed to participate.

We are celebrating this mini man today, on his first birthday! Happy Birthday Titus Andrew!

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…

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 …
