A video of Cody laughing at Ben, to make you smile.

One of the joys of motherhood: hearing my child laugh.
Like, really laugh.
It is the best. I thought I'd share that magical sound with you :)

When Mike & Sarah were here this weekend, we had a fabulous time just hanging out and forcing the kids to be best friends. Ben was into the toys, Cody was into Hannah, and Hannah just sat around and smiled the whole time. It was great.

This is a video of them laughing. Well, of Cody laughing. You'll want to run this sound on repeat all day, and it will make you smile.

If you can watch this without smiling and just wanting to squeeze my little baby in the hug of all hugs, then I'm not sure what you're thinking. This video contains TWO INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL CHILDREN.
But, I have the liberty of boasting about my own.

Cody Alton is the cutest kid ever.
You've never seen such a great giggler.

Well, maybe you have your own kids in your life, and that's fine. That's normal to love them. :) I'm just so thankful for my little man. AND I know that our family will be so glad I posted this video for them to hear him laugh.


Yep...we smiled, laughed even! Thanks Cody, for making our day brighter!

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…
