Children WORKING!


And now it’s time for the reward–a lovely Thanksgiving in August.

And all the children shall give thanks that this day is OVER.

    Oh good, I’m glad it’s not just MY kid! Of course it would be much easier to just do whatever work needs to be done ourselves, but then how would our children ever learn? Life=work – get used to it!

    Thanksgiving more than once a year, what an excellent idea.

    It says French Rose 1264 on the bottom. From what I can find, it’s a vintage pattern imported from Japan.

    You know, some people feel the first Thanksgiving WAS in August!? Don’t know if it was because their Mom made them work extra hard that day or not though! :hungry:

    You’ve probably heard from others but your blog, website and newletter have some kind of problems-no pictures, strange spacing really far apart between typing and hyperlinks don’t work. (I have a pc) no other problems anywhere else.

    It looks as though there is a fence around the children, did you have to fence them in to get them to work? :lol:

    I looked closely, and I’m sure they’re not wearing shock collars that would MAKE them work! Must be love and the carrot of a good meal…. :sun: :hungry:

    You are lucky that you have children who will help you out. I wish that mine would do the same. This makes me think about buying a farm and getting the children back to basics. I love your site and your family seems wonderful. You have what we all want.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
