Welcome to our little "Peace" of Paradise. We're a close-knit family who lives on a 25 acre hobby farm in Central Virginia. Five years ago, we purchased a house on a small lake that needed lots of work, but had tons of potential. Since then, we have spent quite a bit of time, energy and money on turning this place into our dream property. At the same time, we also began homeschooling our two, (now) 9 year old children. I thought a blog would be a great way to record our experiences as well as keep our friends and family updated on our many adventures (and misadventures) as well as serve as a journal for my children.
