"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

I hear often about guns-
I hear often about strength-
I see everything used to build up arms-

Do you?

This the teens call the flagpole- and any ole' pole will do. We have log posts in the back of our house and any time one passes it, they "flagpole!"

This is called the scissors...both of these are done for about a minute.

To me I wonder if anyone else has to hear about the guns(arms) of the teens in their homes?
I wonder if anyone else looks out at the clothesline poles and sees actions like the above?

your kids are the most fun crew of kids i have seen in a long, long time! i would love to hang out with them! i can remember a time when i could probably give them a run for their money doing the 'ol flagpole...not anymore...although i wonder if i hung out with them if they couldn't get me back into shape just because they look like they have so much fun!

can you mail a couple of those kids up to canada?

oh ya - one last thing - your label for this post is:

"Teens love to work out and have the energy to do so"

i think that is because they are raised well, fed homegrown food and are terribly loved!

again - i love posts that feature your kids goofin around - they kill me!
