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

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…
