Both my husband and I are retired teachers, living on the shore of Lake Superior. We have one grown son.

My husband and I have five children, ranging in age from 8 years to 8 months. We have a strawberry patch, and we grow popcorn and lots of other crops besides for sale at a local grocery and roadside
