About LemonpussI am living the dream and staying home to raise my three 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.

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to who in the house is the disciplinarian? I just had to explain the signs in our French book, the “passage interdit” circle with the line crossing out forbidden things. That’s “Nora” there … Continue reading
