Things I didn't think I would have to say to my children | Motherhood

This is a small list of recent quotes I want to remember. Well, I wish I didn't have to, but I want to now that they've been said.




"No, you can't sleep with the rolling pin."


"You don't have to pull your pants down to your ankles to pee. And, turn towards the woods instead of the road."


"Stop! You're not supposed to hang in your window. The screen won't hold you."


"Please don't pee where we walk."


"You can use the dental floss for a Lego zipline, but you can't swing on it! You're too heavy."


"Please! Do NOT pee off the deck through the rails. It's getting on the dog."


"When it starts to rain, don't crawl over your sister to shelter her. It's weird."


"Just pee into the toilet. Not to the wall (not in the trash, not on the seat, not on the floor, not at the bath...)"






So many of them are about peeing. Hmm.... Is this just my boys? I guess that makes me officially a parent of grossness. I'm a Mother of Boys. The MOB Society is my tribe, and now I feel so well-suited for it :)

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…
