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. (Now with more kindergarten!)

You know how in the Little Bear book he makes a hat that sends him to the moon? After one reading of that story little Truman plunked a greasy popcorn bag on his head and announced that hiya helmet was … Continue reading
I keep meaning to update all the folks who aren’t FB friends. We are back from the Caribbean, where we had as close to an idyllic two weeks of vacation as is possible with three kids six and under, one … Continue reading
