28 week appointment

Tomorrow, Tim and I are going in to see Dr. Peters for my monthly check up! This includes the famously 'condensed' glucola syrup substance that I need to drink an hour before they draw blood to check glucose levels (looking for things in myself, like diabetes). another big part of the appointment, outside of bloodwork, and the standard urine, weight, blood pressure tests, we will have a chance to meet our baby though ultrasound for the fourth time!

This ultrasound is very important, as we are going to take a closer look at the development of the kidneys/cavities within, the little parts near where the kidney is attached to the ureters. at our 20 week appt, these cavities were holding more urine, and therefore were enlarged. Please pray with us for this important check tomorrow afternoon-- Tuesday at 3pm mountain time. pray for healthy development of baby, for the proper things to be seen during the ultrasound, and that the kidneys are back to normal. Pray for His presence to surround us at the visit.

We trust that Our God has made this baby in His image, and that His will for our lives is only GOOD. We depend on Him to provide all our physical needs for our family. We are His.

In Love,
Mama Amy

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…
