Finishing Strong

Posted on Apr 1 2014 by admin

Posted on Sep 29 2013 by admin

by Kyndra Steinmann It seems some days the squabbles come every five minutes! The peace of the backyard is shattered by shrieks and cries which rapidly invade the house. “Mommy, he…!” “But she….” “You’re lying!” “No, you are!”   Now, sometimes I know who’s in the wrong, but most of the time I don’t.
