Danya's 12th Birthday
For Danya's 12th birthday, she had a tie-dye water gun party. We tie-dyed t-shirts with spray paint and then had a water gun fight kind of paintball style at the park. We tried turning the water in the guns red and blue, but it didn't work very well. It was more effective at turning the kids red.
Luke came to help us out and the whole event went fairly well. Danya was thrilled to receive new books and various other fun stuff. Mostly she enjoyed having Alecia, Sarah, and Lauren at her party. Her three best friends.
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".
