    I just wanted to say Thank you again for such a wonderful YEAR. I have not got to do as much this year with you guys as used to due to adoption of our little Russian guy. But I do try to keep up with what I can and get what is left up for a longer period of time. I can see you really did take to heart all of what questionnaire you sent out sometime ago. Loved the variety it was awesome and the children loved it too. I pray may blessings on your family and I pray you have a wonderful summer. Cant wait to see you next season. Blessings to you all, The Petitts

    Thanks for the special of the Girls’ Guide to Home Skills. I had purchased some of them earlier, and now you gave me a chance to complete the set. Thanks! I know my daughter, even if she works outside the home at some point, will also have years where she stays home with her young children, and I want her to know how to keep a nice home–a gift, and a place of refuge for her family.
