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!!!!!!!!

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…
