Homeschooling with Grandma
When beginning homeschooling, I always recommend having at least one supportive set of grandparents. I just wish ours lived closer. One of the wonderful things about Daniel's mom is that, every time she visits, she doesn't just bring gifts... she brings educational gifts. She can be counted on to bring new books, puzzles, math games, and even hand made journals that practically read like a geography book documenting travels that she and Grandpa Wayne have been on. Sometimes, I think just talking to their grandparents is an educational experience for my kids. They've been all over the world and lived such amazing lives.
I'm a 38 year old Christian mom of 10 kids. I have six girls; Danya age 15, Gloria age 14, Jordan age 13, Brianna age 13, Katie age 6, and our other 6 year old Karyie. My four sons include Michael age 12, Shane age 11, Kevin age 9, and Ryker age 4 months. I also was a foster mom for about 5 years. In 2009 we adopted two of the 33 kids we've fostered. In April 2012 we adopted three more! I've been happily married to the love of my life, Daniel, for 19 years!
For privacy reasons we cannot post identifying pictures of foster children. That's why their faces are covered or only the backs of their heads are shown. We also give them nicknames to protect their privacy.
The Mini Homeschoolers
Danya and Gloria are "The Mini Homeschoolers" in a series of YouTube videos where they answer questions about homeschooling from a younger perspective. These videos are based on the ones created by two funny homeschooled young men called "Ask the Homeschoolers".
