Each and every time I go to put on my shoes Pequita has found them first and deposited some toys in them. She also hoards my shoes, and finds them from all over the house and makes a big pile upon which she sits to better caress and admire them.
I'm a suburban woman on a quest for the simple life on our 10 acres in the Fingerlakes region of New York. I am living the dream and staying home to raise my two kids while my wife and I try to renovate our 150 year old farmhouse and keep the grapevines from consuming the house. We are a free-range family, and I spend my days with the kids crafting, gardening, canning fruit, and keeping the peace. Some days I'm lucky enough to fit in a little knitting.
