Overnighting it

After a whirlwind weekend in the snowy state, I came back to a peaceful evening with my husband. He cooked a delicious dinner (lasagna--YUMM) for us, and we curled up on the couch to watch--in annual tradition--Christmas Vacation, you know, the Chevy Chase hit from early 90s? It is a family favorite! The seriously relaxing evening continued when Tim dished me up some ice cream and a fresh brownie, and I basically watched him do the dishes and all the rest of kitchen clean up! He is the BEST husband!

Well, Monday I worked a normal day, but then stayed overnight with my little girls... Tim and Maggie joined the three of us for a fun dinner, cookies, and plenty of playtime. When he left, free couch in tow(more on that later) and I turned out all the lights, I only had to get up once, to help Selby put her passy back in her mouth. Pretty restful night on the couch with HGTV and some hot chocolate:) Aaaaah. Bliss!

Fin woke up nice and late, around 7am, while her normal wake up time is like 5:30, so, I took a quick shower, and tiptoed down the hall, she saw me at the door and bolted to me with a huge grin plastered on her sleepy face. She had me kiss the top of her forehead, then reached around to my cheek, and softly placed the sweetest kiss! It was so cute! She looked around, and, just like Reagan used to do, asked, 'where's Tim?' She's been talking about Tim and Maggie since:)

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…
