39 Weeks...

Baby's estimated due date is fast-approaching... Tim's and my anticipation is already here. We are SO excited to meet this baby, and introduce him or her to you, to this world!!! We want to know if we're going to have a boy or a girl. Our names are settled: Boy has a first and middle name, and Girl has a first and middle name. NOW we just want to know which is in my belly.

I'll be taking official votes to guess on boy/girl, height and weight, and arrival days or times if you'd like to participate... Watch soon for that poll!

Tim and I both have our hospital bags packed. I bought some snacks at Target the other day, and now we're just sitting around, being as attentive as possible. I'm tired and achy in my lower back and lower front more each day, but still very mobile and feeling generally well. 

My check up on Thursday went great! Dr. Peters was glad to see that I've progressed. Dilated to 3cm, about 60% effaced (cervix thinning out), and baby has dropped "considerably," getting closer (literally) to making an entrance into our world! She told me she'd be on call Thursday night--seriously considering that I may go into labor at any moment--and that she is guessing baby's small: around 6 or so pounds right now- she thinks under 7lbs. Heart rate was around 130, and my weight (down a lb from last week) and blood pressure are stable & healthy... I measured 39cm over my uterus (belly top to bottom)... right on! Now, it is just the waiting game. I stink at this game.

Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

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…
