Ultrasound Images, short heart-beating video!

We heard only great news yesterday at our Dr. visit! PRAISE GOD! We are happy to report that our baby is "Perfectly healthy, and the kidneys look great!" What a relief! It is amazing, that even when you're trusting God to provide and care for you in His most intimate ways, you still feel a weight lifted when it has been done.

Thank you all for your prayers, and love during our weeks of waiting to see this ultrasound and hear this good news! We are reminded how HE is FAITHFUL in answering our prayers. As He says, "Lo, I am with you, always." and He is :)

For those of you making bets on baby being a boy vs. girl, we obviously didn't come across anything "identifying" in the ultrasound, because our technician knows we don't want to know the sex of our baby... yet. But, the heart rate was at 133 bpm.

I am feeling great, and even sleeping better! A pain I've been having since Saturday is slowly subsiding, so my doctor is sure it must be some type of ligament/muscle/bone thing in my ribs, and will stretch itself out over this week... I hope ;)

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…
