Jesse Boy | Four Months Young

This little dude. He's becoming a big little dude.

He is smiling all the time. Even when he cries, it seems like he has a laugh mixed in.

He is a total flirt with everyone who looks at him. And with inanimate objects (like a fan, or a light, or a wall).

He wants to sit up. He likes the high chair, the boppy, the bumbo, the jumper, and even his belly now.

He rolled over from his tummy to his back once this week! (4.5 months)

He wants to touch things. Lots of things. He puts pretty much everything in his mouth, including his fingers (or as much of his hand that he can).

He drools a lot and gnaws on everything.

He is a big babe. He in size 6/9month clothes, size 2 and 3 diapers, and is "fluffy" on the scale of percentages from the dr.  :) He is an over-achiever in each department of Height, Weight, and Head Circumference.

He sleeps very well, and just on his 4-month birthday did he start waking up in the night to eat. He now sleeps from about 7pm to 7am, and wakes up once or twice to nurse. But, he did just go through a week of being awake for about 30-45min stretches two or three times a night. He nurses about every 3 hours when he's awake.

He is the best littlest man in our life, and lights up knowing his dad is home, and loves being a baby brother to Cody.

Cody is a wonderful big brother, too! He helps me with just about everything that I ask of him. He runs to quickly uncover Jesse and let him stretch when he first wakes up from a nap or the night.

GOD GIVES GOOD GIFTS. We love this one!!!!!!!!

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…
