Audrey holding an inchworm:
"Just look at yo'self. You're adorable!"
"Oh Susannah! Oh won't you cry for me. I play the banjo wif the banjo on my knee."
Evie (while she was reading Pioneer Girl):
"The book that I'm writing in my head is called Modern Girl. About my life. It'll take days to read."
Audrey working on something:
Don't worry. There's constructions in this book, so I know how to do it.
Heidi brandishing a dollar coin:
"Look, it's the Holy Spirit!"
Evie, while watching an Olympic figure skating couple make a mistake:
"Or maybe falling is part of their dance..."
Heidi mesmerized by the floating dust particles:
"Mom, wook- there's fireflies in our house."
Audrey helping to wash the younger girls' hair:
"First I'll wet it, then I'll champagne it."
And an endearing parenting moment- the other night I was dressing the younger two while Evie was waiting for me to turn on the shower. I hollered at her that with four of them I can't be everywhere at once, and sometimes they need to try and do things themselves. From the bathroom I hear, "Evie, you can do this." 💛
