The Skies Proclaim the Works of HIS Hands

Because I'm behind on posting my weekly pregnancy updates... I'll tell you a few things, and share a lightning picture with you instead of catching up on them.

- I had my 38 week Check Up with my OB yesterday. I've progressed some more than last week, and he said not to wait if I go into labor. Just come right away, because he doesn't think it will be a long labor... but he obviously is just guessing, not promising. I was a little over 2cm and pretty thinned out. Baby has dropped some more, and is ready to make an appearance!

- Cody has been screaming, laughing, crying, shouting, dancing, jumping, reading, singing, and talking in his bed today instead of napping. He sounded so wretched and was crying "Help Me, Mooooom!" two times already that I went in there, and he shaped right up. That Kid! He must know that I'm on my very wobbly last leg of energy and spirits here this week.

- Cody had a 2 year check up today and he's healthy as can be. And right on track with development and growth.

- my forehead hemangioma is back, and doubled :( So, I saw the nurse at Dermatology today and she scheduled me for a removal of a more aggresive kind in Nov. She hopes it will go away on it's own after I have the baby, but isn't putting very high stakes on it. Since it's already been cut out and caulterized, she thinks they'll really have to get in there and get it out next time. 

- I have  a goal to take a cool lightning picture and just tried for the first time while Jordy was here last weekend. Here it is. I'll keep trying when I have another lovely storm to watch from the front porch.

- I am going to go nap now

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…
