11 month update on Baby Cody

I kept thinking, I need to get Cody's 11 month update blogged before he turns ONE... YIKES. He's ONE! I'll post more about his birthday, later :)

About our eleven month old son:

This is the last time we get to announce him as Baby Cody... He isn't a baby anymore. He's totally a little tyke... toddling around and crazy busy.

He has done a great job adapting to whatever environment we are in, but he's like me and Tim... a homebody.

He got his first tooth at the end of June, at still ten months, but barely! (his bottom left)

He has been a champ when it comes to sleeping since we put him in his own bedroom... but we now use a monitor at night. He feels so distant otherwise. {Minus his last week of the month, while teething.}

He started WALKING the last week of July, and can travel all the way across a room.

He got his second tooth in the end of July, too (his bottom right)

He is starting to wean off of nursing, drinking lots of water out of his camelbak or a sippy cup.

He LOVES yogurt, shredded cheese, bread, and quesadillas. He likes ham.

He has taken to really liking maggie. I think he misses her now that she's outside.

He really likes to push things around. You should see him scoot Tim's lunchbox cooler across the floor. He really cruises!

He is now napping once a day unless he sneaks a catnap in here or there for the late morning. Sometimes I get tired of him being so cranky that I put him in the room in his crib for some quiet, alone time, and he'll get rested up enough to come back with a good attitude.

He is definitely a handful! SO SO SO crazy busy.

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…

Our Day and Week at a glance | Homeschooling

Yearly Homeschool Schedule With a First Grader, Pre-K, Toddler, and Newborn... This is what our days look like with our three boys and a girl at home.

We are shooting for a July/Aug to March/April school year. Now, this is because I've watched our family the last few years, and ALLLL we want to do when the snow is melting in the early spring is get outside. Explore. So, we still can "do school" from Sept through to May or June like "normal" schedules, but I want to TRY to just be done before then. Plus, it's so hot and exhausting by the time July heat and humidity rolls around that we're done weeding, working in the yard, and ready to stay in the cool house for a few hours every day anyway, so this year, it made sense to get started.

This year, 2017-2018, we started school August 1.  Most school calendars account for 32 to 36 weeks of school. I don't have a state requirement yet that makes us do a certain number of school days per year, or even num…
