A Weekend With the Boys

So, after our fun-lived adventures around town, Suzy and I drove through ridiculous hours of the night on a Friday to reach the boys down in Norwood. 

It was SO worth the construction, the wrong (not)turn, the traffic, the darkness, and the cliffs we endured. Suzy drove and I chatted with her the whole time. It was actually a pretty decent drive, considering.
No need to worry for her sake, we didn't even play "Hey, Cow!" she just wanted to have her photo taken. I conceded.
This is where Tim's bro Kevin lives. It's pretty incredible.
So anyway, when we first got there, we were SO tired and couldn't see anything because it was 1 something am. BUT the next day, the boys took us Elk Hunting with them! This was the drive there, past Colorado Trophies' ranch, Wing Shadow Ranch where Kevin works.
This is me, in his hunting garb. Cute, huh?
Here's the stud brother-in-law Jon.

Here's the stud brother-in-law Jon with his cow (Elk are Bulls and Cows. NOT Bucks. Sometimes I carelessly made that mistake in conversation with any one of the boys, and I wondered if I would be allowed to even look at them after that).

This is just Suzy's really natural, relaxed face. This is what you call ORGANIC SUZY. She only makes it when she is really enjoying herself. So, you may not see it all the time, just when she's completely overjoyed that she is with me ;) I see it most of the time that I am with her.
Mike & Timothy
Brotherly Love.  This is Kev's room at the lodge. 3 bunks. 6 guys. It's so cute.
Now, the ride home was just as stunning as the Norwood Area. This is a breathtaking canyon in between Montrose and Gunnison. GORGEOUS.


You're so stinkin cute in your hunting garb! Also, I was just catching up on your last few posts, and, I have to tell you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THE PIONEER WOMAN!!!! AND THE PIONEER WOMAN COOKS!!! Oh my goodness, I read that stinkin blog every. single. day. LOVE IT.

Can't wait to catch up in person with you.. and talk about the pioneer woman. :)
Thank You Erica! You are so sweet! I know, you probably would own some Camo too... it's so practical for work, and for hiding. If only GAP or Target sold some cute camo, that would be all we'd wear ;)

It was SO wonderful seeing you yesterday and catching up.

I am going to go read from Pioneer woman.

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…
