Sweet Deals.

Today, Maggie & I made a trip of errands. I love taking her with me. Aside from her stench every time you re-enter the vehicle, and the whining you get used to enduring, she's fine company.

Sweet Deal #1: First we hit up the library because I couldn't make it there on my Snow Day the other day (they were also closed, much to my demise). But, I gathered the books I had waiting for me on the "hold" shelf, and headed over to the movie aisle. I think we have some good plots ahead of us this week:)

Sweet Deal #2: After the Library, we raced through all the slushy snow and deep gushing puddles over to ARC. I got a sweet deal on a Coach purse, and the lady at the register reminded me of that as she glared at me--I would guess that she was simply mad because one of her coworkers let this piece of black leather slip buy into the regular stash without being overpriced and placed in the glass case behind the counter.

Sweet Deal #3: Before heading home, we made a final stop at the pet store. We were looking for a seat cover for the truck, and got one for a steal because it was on clearance. Who would have guessed that vinyl buckle-over seat covers weren't top sellers? Well, the cash register didn't recognize the box and tried to charge me double... I didn't let it slide, though. Not with all the great deals I was in for today. Nope, I made sure I got that clearance price.

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…

Happy New Year 2018! | Family Life, Health, and Commitments.

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
