A few weeks ago, we discussed my illustrious show choir past (2 years in high school) and I showed the kids the @auburn_university_singers so they could understand what I meant by show choir. Mira was mesmerized and watched every second. Today, she and Finn showed us their routine where she sang the soundtrack, every note and beat on pitch. (@ptxofficial show you how to love.) She choreographed it herself and then patiently taught her silly little brother to follow along. She lives up to her name every single day. I can't wait to see what she does next. #miraclegrows
I'm cooking for a crowd tonight for a family game night with friends. We're all a wee bit excited around here. See insta-stories for more yummy food and games.
Apparently my plan for surviving Wednesday is a workout and pithy phrases on my beverages. #whateverittakes
Fulfilling the only role Finn thinks I was put on earth for: Dinosaur Book Reader. #professorfinn
When a trip to the orthodontist became a quick ice cream date/beat box session.
This sleepy fella greeted his daddy with a Father's Day spaceship Lego creation. He dressed up for the occasion, obvi. I love this pic for all the obvious reasons, but also bc it shows @fandrewanning is a man of the Word - that's his Bible open on his lap, starting his day the same way as always - with Scripture. I love how he shepherds us and deeply yearns that we all love and know Jesus better. I'm so glad we get to raise a family together, Andrew. Happy Father's Day!
When book research leads you to new life goals...
He woke up like this.
Finally sending off my fifth graders' Just So Story books they wrote. Illustrating and publishing their stories makes them feel like serious authors. And they are! I miss them all! #bravewriterlifestyle
FYI: the keys of a piano are removable if you need to dry them out. #lessonlearned
A clean laundry room floor in all its shiny glory. #rarebeauty #onceAyear
Somehow, I convinced them to keep working out with me. Fortunately, when they fuss, it's at the workout on the computer and not at me. So far... #t25
Grateful for that friend you can't shake, no matter how far apart or how crazy our lives, or how many times we're pregnant simultaneously.
Super excited to dive into Romans today with the @shereadstruth community. And I love knowing so many friends who are close to my heart but far away in miles are studying with me. ❤️#SheReadsTruth #romans
