Snow, Right on Time
I was really hoping we wouldn't get snow for Thanksgiving. My wish was granted and we had absolutely perfect Fall weather. It didn't even rain until the drive home. Then, a week later, we got a perfect snow. The kids were able to make snow men and throw snowballs, but it wasn't so bitterly cold that they didn't enjoy being outside. It's days like these when they really enjoy being homeschooled. We can put the books aside for an hour or two in the middle of the day when the sun's nice and warm and just go play. I'm looking forward to next year when all our kids will be home. "Hoops" and "Lego Man" missed out on some serious snow fun. But "Happy" and Katie had a blast. The kids favorite activity? Eating snow, of course.
I'm a 39 year old Christian mom of 10 kids. I have six girls; Danya age 17, Gloria age 15, Jordan age 15, Brianna age 14, Katie age 8, and our other 8 year old Karyie. My four sons include Michael age 14, Shane age 13, Kevin age 11, and Ryker age 2. 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 21 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".
