First Post!

Hello to anyone who bothers to read this first post. I figure I have so much to say to my kids every day, I might as well put some of the overflow someplace!
As far as the title is concerned, grace is a gift, and peace is what I strive for, and try to achieve a little of every day-mostly during naptimes.
For those who don't know me well, I have 2 children of my own, one is homeschooled and the other has graduated, and I run a home day care. Yes, I love taking care of kids, and no I'm not (completely) crazy. I've been married for almost 22 years to a wonderful man who I love very much.
Future posts will encompass mostly personal things: my daycare, my mind wanderings, my homeschool, and lots of other things. I look forward to hearing from anyone who cares to comment!
Looking forward in Jesus, Valerie

Yay! My sister is blogging!!

Congrats! And welcome to the wonderful world of world wide diaries. I'm sure the world of memes will suck you in like it has me :-)

You should get your kids to blog on here too - my oldest posts to our blog occasionally.

Hi, Valerie - nice to meet you! I'm a fellow homeschooling mom. I have four - and this fall will be the first time I'm teaching all of them! My daughter is in 5th grade, and my boys are in 3rd, 2nd, and kindergarten. I blog at Mommy Brain:

Welcome to blogging!

Hey, kev-I might get the kids to blog, if I can pull them away from their video games occasionally!

Carrie k, it's nice to meet you too! I homeschooled my oldest (18)for awhile, from 5th to 8th. Then he got too advanced for me, and I sent him to a school where he could get answers to his questions from someone who knew what they were talking about! Teaching 4 at once should be an adventure, I know when I have my daycare kids here, I really look forward to naptime. My dd takes naptime as computer time, so the house gets really quiet then.
