Have you Chai'd Kataluma?

Hi. Today I met two of my good friends at Kataluma Chai Co. in the Colorado Mills Mall :) It was just great! I met Kaitlyn in the parking lot, and we drove across the street to sneak-pick-up Kristen from Mimi's Cafe. There, she had been dining with her hubby Blake, and their surprised-for-his-birthday friend Troy (it also happens to be Troy's Ten Month wedding anniversary). Anyway, after a quick catch up with the boys at Mimi's, the three of us girls took the jaunt back across the street to Kataluma's. YUMMM! I got an "original black chai milk shake with carmel spice ice cream." WOW. Seriously rich, but totally delicious--I could eat it all in one sitting very easily :) Don't worry, pregnancy hasn't slowed down my regular ice cream intake, it is still peak on my daily diet!

So, here we are just before I left at our own little "Chai Time" like the wall is quoting :) Thanks Kristen for coming to the Denver area and going to your Hubby's cousin's wedding, so we could see you!

I just started weeping! Good thing we will all be joyously reunited in two weeks! Love you, Besties.
Kait--I think this is great! It captured our morning at Kataluma perfectly. I wish we'd had longer time to follow up on the rest of our lives, too, but LOVED the whole morning ;)

Kels--Don't weep! We'll be together SO very soon! Can't wait!

p.s. you should know that Kristen asked if I was due the twelfth of June :) NO--then I wouldn't be going to PA for the wedding the week before ;)

Man I am so jealous of you guys! :( But I suppose I should focus on the fact that you will be here in less than 2 weeks!! Yes, that will keep me going :)
P.S. Did they re-open Kataluma's? I thought it had closed for awhile?

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…
