Super Why! | days of toddlerhood

Cody has his first hero: Wyatt, who turns into Super Why, from the PBS Kids show, "Super Why!" 

It is funny to ask him who he is or what he is doing now because he wants to be someone else! How fun, this new stage of childhood, where he is doing imaginative play! He flys around with his arms spread and says he super flies. Everything seems to be super-something. We read a super-book yesterday, and today he was taking a super-jump from the bench. Now, let's hope he is taking a super-nap ;)

While in the store, we passed a new milestone: picking out his own cereal. We were strolling through the cereal aisle--he was in the cart--like any other time, and all of a sudden he pointed at the Alpha-bits box and said, "ta-ah super why soodoo, mommy." (Which translates closely to Cody's Super Why cereal, mommy) SAY WHAT?! Our son can identify characters and ask for his own cereal now? Oh no. We did not just go there. But yet, we did. I said, "No, Codeman, we aren't going to buy that, we are going to he some good cereal." We'll, he said "Please soodoo, Mama?" So I checked out the box, and they are affordable and higher in nutritional value and lower in sugar than a lot of cereals. So now we have Super Why Cereal too!

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!
















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…

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 …
