Bowling with Friends
Our Sunday school class planned a bowling night together. Daniel and I don't really bowl. We've probably been a handful of times in the sixteen years we've been married. We actually did okay, considering our lack of practice. We were well matched with the people in our group and managed to have a fun time. Daniel likes to do the whole professional bowler moves thing. I just tried to get a good running start and pray it down the lane. My gutter balls only slightly outnumbered my strikes, so I figure it's a good strategy.
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".
