Jesse | Two Months Old

WOW! We have a nearly two month old in the house! J-Bob just had his two-month check up at the doctor this morning, and got his first shots. He did a good job, only a few tears and a quick recovery.

He is over 13 lbs, and that is "gifted" in the weight department, as Doctor put it :) for boys his age. He has a large head (Cody always has, too), and is right in line or barely above average for his height. What a champ!

THANK YOU GOD for a healthy, happy, baby boy! We Love Jesse!

He has started smiling a lot! His favorite person is mama, with dad as his second favorite. It's all because of the provisions I have that Tim doesn't... because he reaaaaaallly likes Tim! He follows Tim around with his eyes, and even turns his head to find him. Cody has a better understanding of Jesse's little body compared to his great big one, and has lessened the amount of jumps and pushes he gives his little brother... BUT there are still a lot of moments I find myself flying across the room with an echoing "no, no, no, no, no.... Jesse can't have you picking him up by his feet." or, "Oh, woooops! Baby doesn't need another blanket over his face." or, "Yikes! Don't ever do that again, okay, buddy?"  or, "Wwwwoah! Please don't put that too close to his mouth, Codes. He can't eat silly putty."

But, that's the life we are living. It is SOOOOOOOO good! Praise God ALONE for this. We are BLESSED and ever grateful for the joy these two little guys bring us.

THANK YOU GOD! We Praise YOU for Jesse's life!

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…
