My sister took some pictures of the kids the other day and I think they're pretty adorable, although I might be a bit biased. 😊 Thanks auntie Tori for your talent and patience! @victoriaconnersphotography

Being the youngest of five means getting all the snuggles. Pretty sure he's been in someone's arms at least 98% of the time since he's been born.

This guy just peed and pooped on me during a diaper change. First time that's happened in 8 years of parenting. My streak is broken. πŸ˜†

When I only have one free hand to make lunch it's pretty great to have a helper or two in the kitchen. πŸ₯œπŸ“πŸž

Emery is now the proud owner of her very own library card. So proud of this girl. Although she's always been a whiz at math, she really struggled with reading and from kindergarten through the middle of first grade we worked through three different reading programs until we finally decided to set them all aside and let it come to her when she was ready. In that time we did lots of read alouds together as a family, let her read fun simple books, and just let her learn at her own pace. Since the beginning of this school year she has already read over 26 good sized chapter books on her own! The books that would at one time take her weeks to read now take her an hour or two and now she's flying through 400+ page books. For all the hours of struggling through reading lessons I should have realized that, just like the rest of parenting experiences, sometimes things take time and that's perfectly okay. God made each one of our kids unique in their own way and to try to fit them into some arbitrary mold or standard is ultimately foolish. I'm slowly learning this lesson! #learningpatience #ranemschoolhouse #homeschool

Apparently being extremely pregnant and way past my "due date" gets me in a baking mood. #11dayspastdue

I didn't tell her that q-tips were meant for cleaning ears. She just assumed they'd make wonderful toe cleaners and now she's determined to have the cleanest toes around. πŸ˜†
