September 26, 2006
By

The feminist movement would have us believe that the life of homemaking is only for uneducated, low achieving, lazy women who do not have any ambition to do anything profound with their lives.

Cheap Toddler Entertainment – Make your own spider web…..

I can’t complain. Since moving out to the country, the children have been in heaven with endless things to do and see.

Well, these are our real pumpkin…
