Softball at Clement Park

This month, Tim started playing in a competitive softball league with a few guys he knows from church and some more that he just met. So far, they won their first game 14-13, and their second game 20-5. I'd like to say they have a good start to this early spring season...

On Tuesday nights, they play at Clement Park on one of the two main Softball fields over by the batting cages/Columbine side of the park. It has been fun for me (and Maggie) to come watch... You remember how ridiculous me & my pals could get at church softball games in High School, right?

*to refresh your memory, we'd cheer dorky things like:
"Let's Go, Milaca Free! One, and two, and three, Wee-Wee!"

Tim's AWESOME triple. He did great!
Anyway, I don't have any friends, or in essence of this last game, ZERO other fans on the bleachers except for me and the dog (and that's for both teams combined!). But, I'll give it to the boys that it was WINDY! and SUPER SUNNY until it set behind the mountains. Yikes. It was like REALLY REALLY WINDY. My friends at 9News called it Gale Force winds on Tuesday. Which is so sad and difficultly drawing out the wild fires which are still firing in Golden. :(

Maggie, Blowing away in the WIND!

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…
