Blue eyes, brown hair? (Amy - didn't you have brown hair when you were born?)

I am very excited for the two of you! Could you please message me or Susan your address? Thank you!

From the getgo I thought it was going to be a girl...but
Boy (boys are nice....girls too, but I think boys are nice to give birth to)
8 lbs. 9 oz. (Tim was 8 lb 5 oz)
22" long (Tim was 21" long)
8/11/11 (Tim was born at 3:48 am during a horrendous snow storm!)
Dark blue eyes, really light brown hair w/a hint of strawberry, turning blonde as he grows older.

Do I get a special award for the Tim trivia even if I'm totally wrong with my guesses?

Grandpa Mike makes a late guess
It's a boy
I'll guess 8 lbs 3 oz
19" long
Born approx 5:30 AM, August 7th
And I think Cody would be a great name

Oh yes, Not to be Left out. We were out of town when this game started! Oddly enough Celebrating Amy's Uncle Keith's 60th (8/7/1951) Birthday! So, anyway, I'd say we agree with Mike all the way! A husky boy! (So happy for you, besides we need another hunting generation! Us American Girl doll owners will unite next time around...maybe!!)
Have to admit I thought Cody would have a big head of Suzy Nordstrom hair!( Amy had a lot of dark hair at birth!) Cody will have away to go to catch up with Amy's weigh in though...9.6 oz as I recall. She was an early morning babe as well. I will also add that many a women will be jealous of the quick birth... way to go Mimi!
Love Mom

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

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…

Our Day and Week at a glance | Homeschooling

Yearly Homeschool Schedule With a First Grader, Pre-K, Toddler, and Newborn... This is what our days look like with our three boys and a girl at home.

We are shooting for a July/Aug to March/April school year. Now, this is because I've watched our family the last few years, and ALLLL we want to do when the snow is melting in the early spring is get outside. Explore. So, we still can "do school" from Sept through to May or June like "normal" schedules, but I want to TRY to just be done before then. Plus, it's so hot and exhausting by the time July heat and humidity rolls around that we're done weeding, working in the yard, and ready to stay in the cool house for a few hours every day anyway, so this year, it made sense to get started.

This year, 2017-2018, we started school August 1.  Most school calendars account for 32 to 36 weeks of school. I don't have a state requirement yet that makes us do a certain number of school days per year, or even num…
