Building a life of Simple Creative Quality. I am a wife to Doug and a mother to three wonderful kids - Austin 13, Amanda 11, and Michael 3. With the help of my family I run a state licensed childcare center. We currently operate on all shifts, seven days a week. I homeschool Austin, Amanda and Michael. Doug works by day as a machinest for Mckee Foods, and evenings and weekends he helps me with the childcare center. He also helps with our church's children's program on Wednesday evenings and is a volunteer EMT for our local Rescue Squad.
