Tim's Ankle

Two weeks ago, yesterday, Tim got hit on the pitcher's mound with a line drive into the side of his leg above his ankle bone a couple inches. Ouch! I was overnighting at the Dolans, so I just assumed that the boys' double header wrapped up early when I received a call from my hubby... Not so much. "Honey, I took a pretty hard hit tonight. I'm hurtin'." Apparently all the guys came in from the outfield because the hit (probably around 100+ mph--they use metal bats) made such a loud noise they were all sure it was broken. That is a pretty awful feeling to know that you can't do anything for him. And the foolish boy stayed the rest of the game (got hit in the first inning) before stopping at Target to buy/carry a 50 pound bag of dog food home and THEN going home to ice it. Typical, right?

Well, he iced and heated it very regularly with Tylenol and Ibuprofen in the next week or so. He took a day and a half off from work, because he couldn't even be on it. Then, he slowly started recovering. Now it has been two weeks, and he feels way better, and we could see his ankle bone this morning! WOO HOO. A huge improvement from the swollen lump he'd had.

 Then, the heat/ice pack exploded in the microwave this morning with a POP!!! Hmm... not my favorite. But, he just used one of my Grandma Shirley Corn Bags on it instead.

Now, he's off to work and I'm just telling you about it :)
Long story short, he was in pretty rough shape, but is healing super well. Thank you for your prayers!

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!

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…
