I was pretty quiet on Instagram this week.

No real reason…I suppose there just wasn’t much that was instagrammable.  (Totally a word.)

So this week, I scavanged my little sister’s insta feed.

I love that my kids have such a close relationship with their aunt and cousins.

I love that my house is often a revolving door of young, fun, college kids.  Who raid the pantry, then the fridge, then start a load of laundry, and finally…cuddle with my kids.

It’s a special relationship.  And there’s something so sweet about how my kids have this unique opportunity to spend lots of time with younger adults.

Plus, they have all the cool lingo down.

And, as you will see, have mastered the art of the selfie.








It’s the best, right?  I think I’ll share insta pics from cousin Nelle and Tess’ feeds soon.  The pictures are too much.

So thanks college kids for loving on my little kids.

You will be such a huge part of their childhood memories.

And I think that’s the coolest ever.

Oh, and thanks for changing diapers while you’re here.  That’s pretty awesome too.

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    This just left me… happy. It cracks me up how well some of these kids take selfies… my kids are pretty fantastic at it too. Then there is me fumbling with my phone, trying to hold it right, and take a picture… haahaa.
