Doing things the old fashioned way!
What did my mother, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers do after they ate dinner? They first poured water in the sink (they might have even had to heat the water first). Then, they got cracking and washed those dishes by hand. Big Brother and I had a lesson in the hard work our "foremothers" put forth for every meal. As a home educator, I would love to tell you that I planned this as a lesson of gratitude. In reality, lessons of gratitude are often thrust upon us. We'll be remembering our "foremothers" this week, while we figure out what to do with our "vacationing" dishwasher. Thank you to all those women who worked so hard for every meal of the day. Also - a big thank you to the creator of the dishwasher!
