Scandia Baby

Even thought this is a poor quality picture (a still shot from our video camera), I love the way it has mom, Ken, and Cody all smiling. Cody's had is crooked and cutely sticking out his ears!

This is looking from the kitchen to the dining area at Scandia House of Isle... the day the first residents moved in in December!  It is the sweetest thing, a little old couple that is still married after a lifetime of joys and tears, probably. They are renting out two rooms, connected in the middle with a door. So, one will be their sleeping/bedroom and the other will be their sitting room with windows overlooking the big yard with trees and everything. {Precious}

Mom and Ken opened up the house in Isle in December after gutting an existing home, and adding on a long hallway of bedrooms. And, the hallway is wide enough for wheel-chair races... GO GO GO! They also have Scandia House of Mora. Who knows, maybe they will have Scandia House of Bemidji, someday :) If you know them, you wouldn't be surprised. I mean. They also run Foreston Storage Services, ABIM, and mom continues to Sub in school while being an active member of random things like the Food Shelf and School Board things for Dollars for Scholars. I don't even know what all they do. They are insane, and we love them. GO MOM AND KEN! You're crazy, but great at it!!! I'm thankful your first grandson gets to be a part of the chaos with you :)

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…
