Here’s my problem. I have if-you-give-a-mouse-a-cookie syndrome when it comes to painting. It started out with painting the inside of a bookcase that moved to the doors and the trim of the bookcase that has slyly taken me to the entire floor and now that I’m finished with the second coat, I’m thinking the walls are looking dingy...and the ceilings seem to have yellowed slightly over the years. It’s the perfect thing to do on a rainy day...except when you run out of paint and have to leave the house. #ineedanintervention #paintaholic What’s your if-you-give-a-mouse-a-cookie syndrome?

This. This is why we live here. (Well, that, and Ryan’s job is here 😜) It was so magical to kayak with dolphins so close this morning. Pearl was with me and we were giddy as schoolgirls, gasping and squealing. God’s creations are so magnificent. #thattailslaptho

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. -Leonardo da Vinci.

Bells of Ireland are one of my favorite flowers—especially the scent. Similar to tulips, they grow (just a little bit) after being cut, but they will always bend to be perpendicular with the ground, no matter the angle they’re placed in the vase. Also, as a side note, upholstery fabric is usually my favorite to make skirts out of—this is an oldie that I’ve loved forever, but I noticed during church it has quite a few stains. 😂 #katybikestochurch

Dear Drummer’s future wife, You are welcome. While it is SO much easier to just do it myself instead of listening to him complain about and tantrumize (yes, the situation merits a new word) every little chore, I have persevered. He will know HOW to clean by the time you come along. However, I do not offer money back guarantees about him actually doing the work. Or not throwing tantrums while he does it. But still. You’re welcome. -Katy

My animal lover, she once said she didn’t dare become a vet for fear of not being able to bare watching animals suffer. She’s reconsidering now that she’s able to tattoo her purebred bunnies. I admire the amount of compassion and sympathy she holds in her heart. How did I get so lucky? (Feathers from our chickens on whom we are waiting for eggs...fingers impatiently drumming)

While we were at our family reunion, we set aside one evening for just the adults to chat about raising kids. With 23 of them ranging in ages from 5 months (pictured: baby Fae!) to nearly 17. Each child comes with their own recipe of salty, spicy, sweet, and sour. Listening to the trials and heartaches of each family, I wished I had the magic potion of the how-tos and the do-nots for the easy raising of a child, but I don’t. Nobody does. That’s what is so hard, yet more importantly, so rewarding. We have to each get dirty and figure. it. out. Nobody can take our rolls of the parental sort. There will always be advice (solicited and not), but we have to pick and choose what is best for us and what is best for our children because nobody on this earth will ever know them like you do, nor love them like you do.

Went fishing for the first time yesterday. These two little fishermen caught something. I didn’t. 😂 Trying new things is good for the soul. #hearts💙knit

The original sibs. 23 grandkids between us. It’s been a GLORIOUS constant pitter patter of feet this week. #hearts💙knit

All the grandkids joined the babies in their crying chorus to let us know how much they love family photos. #hearts💙knit

Our first day of the family reunion...just missing 14 more merfolk to join this merclan. #hearts💙knit #wemakeprettyfish 📷:@kurtknudsen
