Default Newbie Saying Hi

Hey Everyone

Found this forum today and decided to join up. Wanted to give a brief description of myself. I've ran a licensed home daycare for 8 years now in central IL. Before that I worked for 12 years in daycare centers. I have a BS ironically in criminal justice- went to school for law enforcement before going back to childcare where I had worked while in school. Married for 13 years, 3 kids. Am also a CPR/ FristAid instructor dealing mainly with other providers and educators.

Away from work I am a Bladesmith, which is a blacksmith specializing in custom knives. I have to be the only person who has ever closed his daycare because I had to go to a knife show.

Anyway, thanks for letting me join up

Dave Armour
