An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Tuesday, May 08, 2012
We joined my friend, Brandy, and her children at the Denver Zoo for a homeschool field trip. When Brandy goes on a field trip, she's not playing around. She brought assignments for her kids and had them classifying animals on note cards. I was impressed. Most of our kids were at regular school, so we only had Katie and Karyie with us. It was kind of fun to be the small family at an event for once.
We had fun trying to get pictures of them with the peacock. We also enjoyed the duck that was sitting on a nest with eggs in it.
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".
