31 Weeks Baby

As you may be able to see, my sticking-out-belly button is hard for someone to miss these days. I walked up to Tim's softball games Monday night, and one of the player's wives said, "Hi Amy, how are you? You're belly button's sticking out!" :)  I think that sums it up well enough. I've still been feeling great, although sometimes tired. Lately, my back has began to ache. It is pretty much when I switch from sitting or laying to a standing or walking position. If I squat, it is more painful, too. But, it is just a moment of ache until my body readjusts to the shift. Tim made a comment last night that it looks like I am starting to get a more waddley walk, too.

Last night we toured the OB Maternity part of our Hospital. It went great, and it was so precious to see a little baby in the nursery---and imagine that in about 9 weeks, we'll have one of those too! We are both getting very excited to have a baby at home, in our lives, as the beginning of growing our family.

(info from How your baby's growing:
This week, your baby measures over 16 inches long. He weighs about 3.3 pounds (try carrying four navel oranges) and is heading into a growth spurt. He can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin. He's probably moving a lot, too, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby's kicks and somersaults keep you up. Take comfort: All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.

Your baby is really growing! Glad you are feeling well (except for being tired and moments of ache). Can't wait to see this little one. It won't be too long now. Are you learning about breathing techniques during labor? They really do help. It will be hard for Tim to see you in pain, so he might need to learn some breathing techniques too :) Looking beautiful.

P.S. interesting background in the photo!

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…
