Arms full of tattoos and hands full of butter. Learning about the ocean and the animals that live in the coldest climates by doing some experimenting today. #ranemschoolhouse

Imma just sit here and enjoy this clean area and moment of quiet with my cold chai for a few minutes before starting lunch. We finished school early and I'm keeping the kids contained to the porch (dubbed "sector 4" for today) with an entire cardboard box from the bunk bed that we put together last night. They are tearing it into 7,000 pieces, going through rolls of tape, markers, and creating some pretty interesting stuff with it that I'll probably have to secretly throw in the garbage while they're sleeping in a couple weeks. . . . #momentofpeace #illtakeit #letthembelittle #oldhouses

I don't know if there could be a more perfect day for homemade chicken soup and rolls. πŸ€—

Just a boy helping his mom make 8,000 popsicles. I think he may be in it for the free samples, but hey, I'll take the help! πŸ“πŸŒπŸ #frozipforthewin

I was wondering why it was so quiet in the house. I'm pretty sure Oscar is asleep too because it's never this quiet at this time of day. #bedtimeisgoingtoberough #idontevencarerightnow #enjoyingthequiet

I love watching these guys play. It's also a good distraction from the two baskets of laundry that need folding and lunch that needs to be made.

These three worked hard today. They painted a basketful of rocks, made signs, and proceeded to sell their rocks to the neighborhood (the big spenders may have been mom and dad 😬) for $0.05/rock. They spent a few hours outside waving and calling out their prices, then left their basket out for passerbyers. I think they even made over a dollar. πŸ˜†πŸ’œ

Favorite thing about baby wearing? The cuddles. πŸ’œ Especially when they become toddlers who rarely stop moving. #wearallthebabies #babywearing

I'm pretty sure he's dripping paint and water from his brush all over the table right now, but I don't even care because he's quiet, everyone else is quiet, and I have hot cup of coffee and a new book. #notgettingup #quiettime

When it's 1,000 degrees outside (and inside) and you make the decision to turn on the oven and cook over the stove, the food better be good.
