The weather is so great today. We spent the morning at my favorite park, the one with the best playground and surrounded by the lake. We met friends there, and it is really fun seeing the kids interact so differently than last summer. Now they seek each other out, take turns and share with a fair bit of success, and chatter about everything. My kids haven't seen their friend Sophie for 6 months, but they had a good time. At one point Soph sat down between them, put her arms around their shoulders and said, "you are my best friends." Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry
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.
