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?

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…

Happy New Year 2018! | Family Life, Health, and Commitments.

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
