Sunday Morning Style
My boys briefly went through a phase, that still occasionally makes a reappearance, of dressing up for church. On a usual Sunday we have rules like, no holes in your clothes, no high waters, leggings or shorts required under dresses, no tight or overly revealing clothing, etc. We don't, however, require them to wear dresses or slacks. (although I do encourage the dresses on nice days) The boys have been choosing to wear button up collared shirts with vests and slacks and even, on this particular Sunday, dress shoes. They looked so handsome that I had to take a photo. Then the girls, who had decided to wear matching outfits, decided they needed in on the photos, too. I definitely don't mind when my kids willingly decide to go the extra mile on their appearance!
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".
