Angry Birds Birthday!
For Shane's 8th birthday this year we got to have an Angry Birds party. I was so glad he chose this theme, because it looked like so much fun! We had fun decorating the cake and setting up blocks with pig balloons for them to knock over. I drew an Angry Birds character on each kid's cheek. They actually turned out pretty good with those face paint crayons.
Shane was happy that his friend, Esi, who lives down the street came. Esi gave him an awesome gift; an Angry Birds toy and a t-shirt. Gloria even decorated one of Shane's gifts to look like the exploding bomb bird.
I'm a 38 year old Christian mom of 10 kids. I have six girls; Danya age 15, Gloria age 14, Jordan age 13, Brianna age 13, Katie age 6, and our other 6 year old Karyie. My four sons include Michael age 12, Shane age 11, Kevin age 9, and Ryker age 4 months. 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 19 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".
