Our New Home (to be)


The Lord works in ways that we never expect. He is fruitful and provides for us when we need. Tim and I had been feeling a little discouraged when searching for a place to live in Bemidji. Because it is a college town, renting is pretty hard to find availability outside of the school calendar (we're moving to start a lease the end of June... so college students are neither coming nor going... they're set already). Our friend Paul called the other day and mentioned a potential place for us. We were like, yeah, tell us more...

This is it. We couldn't be any happier to have a place on a lake, two mins from Mokahum!!!

Tim and I are so excited to call this 1982 treasure our home in just TWO and a HALF MONTHS!!!

It has a garage!

It has trees and a lake!
 
 It has awesome linoleum and wood paneling!

The current tenants love to hunt, too. And it has lots of wood paneling.
 
 It has vintage appliances, and more wood paneling!

And a beautiful yard, view, and driveway.

Thank the Lord for his provision. We are thankful to have a wonderful home which allows us to live in the country, and raise our son (and dog) to love nature! So, we're signing a one-year lease on Ose Lake! Woohoo. Tim will probably  be like, Don't get too excited or anything yet... (because I always jump the gun on everything) we haven't even seen it in person. But we are both seriously pumped. And glad to have the house hunting out of the picture.

We have a moving date set for our Kastenbauer/Sweding family Convoy the last week of June. We have a plan to drive to Minnesota with all our stuff one day. Then move in to our new home the next!!! YAY YAY YAY!

sounds awesome! how wonderful to be on a lake.
We are seriously excited about being on a lake... in the woods, too. BUT I decided it may take some close watching of Cody!!! I can already envision him darting over there, just to be a naughty little tot this summer! Can't you!?

Yes, you'll have to be extra vigilant. I hear little boys are busy. :)

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!
















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…

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…
