Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I'm joining the blog party I just found out about. Looks like fun and I've already visited several awesome blog sites I discovered from the list of blogs on the blog party site!

I'm Stacy, originally from Georgia and now transplanted to Iowa. I love it here with my husband of 12 years and my 3 girls! I use to be paid to teach other people's children and now I stay home and teach my own. I am the VBS director at my church and enjoy playing piano for our church praise team. I am also involved with a local MOPS group. My husband is a public school teacher and is also in the Army National Guard. God has been so good to our family and I can't imagine my life without Him!



HEM is my oldest daughter, she is 11. She loves Jesus with all her heart! She is in 5th grade and loves tap, jazz, and gymnastics. She also LOVES reading and history. She is a second mom in the house. She loves helping people.




EMM is second. She is 8 years old and in 2nd grade. She accepted Jesus as her Savior earlier this year! She also loves dance and gymnastics. Her favorite things are math, Polly Pockets, and board games. She is my little snuggler!




GEM is our last. She recently turned 3 years old. She absolutely loves singing! Her life is a living musical! She is a prankster and loves playing with friends. She really likes to laugh and she is ALMOST potty trained! WOOHOO!!




I hope you enjoy following my blog. I blog about all kinds of topics from homeschooling, personal devotions, family, life experiences, humor, etc. I also enjoy reading other blogs, too! Enjoy the party!


I almost forgot!! Prizes! I would go for 7, 8, 22, 32, 33, 36, 46, 48, 49, 68, 69, 96, and 113. No particular order. I like them all!

Isn't a potty trained child the best thing ever? I mean, don't get me wrong, I am thankful to the makers of Huggies, just like anyone else, but my wallet, my nose and the planet are not! :) Loved when my now 4 year old finally GOT it! Hope it ends for you soon too.

Hope you have a great time at the party this week and meet lots of great bloggers and friends! Stop by and say hi when you get the chance.

Greetings from another homeschool mom, but of boys. I've enjoyed reading your posts. I would love for you to stop by my blog. On Monday, I'm starting a new weekly blog carnival: Making Memories Mondays. I'm sure you've got some great memories to share. I hope you'll stop by my blog and consider joining in the attempt at making Mondays something to look forward to rather than something to dread. Happy Homeschooling!
