The Skies Proclaim the Works of HIS Hands

Because I'm behind on posting my weekly pregnancy updates... I'll tell you a few things, and share a lightning picture with you instead of catching up on them.

- I had my 38 week Check Up with my OB yesterday. I've progressed some more than last week, and he said not to wait if I go into labor. Just come right away, because he doesn't think it will be a long labor... but he obviously is just guessing, not promising. I was a little over 2cm and pretty thinned out. Baby has dropped some more, and is ready to make an appearance!

- Cody has been screaming, laughing, crying, shouting, dancing, jumping, reading, singing, and talking in his bed today instead of napping. He sounded so wretched and was crying "Help Me, Mooooom!" two times already that I went in there, and he shaped right up. That Kid! He must know that I'm on my very wobbly last leg of energy and spirits here this week.

- Cody had a 2 year check up today and he's healthy as can be. And right on track with development and growth.

- my forehead hemangioma is back, and doubled :( So, I saw the nurse at Dermatology today and she scheduled me for a removal of a more aggresive kind in Nov. She hopes it will go away on it's own after I have the baby, but isn't putting very high stakes on it. Since it's already been cut out and caulterized, she thinks they'll really have to get in there and get it out next time. 

- I have  a goal to take a cool lightning picture and just tried for the first time while Jordy was here last weekend. Here it is. I'll keep trying when I have another lovely storm to watch from the front porch.

- I am going to go nap now

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…
