Spring Music Concert
Brianna singing and performing on the recorder. Danya in the drum choir. It was definitely a show worth watching! Danya was the youngest of the drummers. Most of the kids were older teens. If you watch the video of Danya carefully, you'll notice in the first few seconds that her drum slips down and lands on the seat. I was amazed at her poise and confidence for an 11 year old.
She calmly continued drumming and fixed it at the first opportunity, never getting lost or having any trouble jumping right back in. I was so proud of her. She has the heart of a musician!
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".
