Waiting on this place, Praising our KING

Well, rumor's are true: Tim and I are buying a home. We found just the right place for our needs and wants, and are now waiting to close on the property in the next couple of weeks. So, it is not finalized yet, and it is not OURS yet... but we are trusting in God for this to come through if that is His will for our family.

Guys, this place is SO great and really what we dream of. It's a foreclosure, and needs quite a bit of work, but is a newer home and we can't wait to get our Tim's hands dirty. :) He has some excellent strength, motivation, and skills. We're grateful for the community we have up here and around within family and friends that are willing to help us make this house a home. We'll be putting in flooring, cabinets and appliances as soon as we can after closing on the home. We may be living in a disheveled place for a little while, but are very much looking forward to putting these tough times on the memory block as "the way it used to be." We'll be able to look back on the before & after and see all the hard-earned rewards of working on our house together.

It is a great location for us to be, with acreage. PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM THIS BLESSING COMES.

Here are some pictures, so all of you who've been begging may see what we're getting ourselves into.

Wow Amy I am so excited for you and your family. Looks great! You must be excited to close and get in. We also had to live upside down for several months while we had work done on our place.

I didn't see wood paneling on the voting options. I think you'd be extremely amiss to forego such beauty!

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…
