Things that go Boom!
The majority of the fireworks experience was fun. Jordan and Michael had never actually done their own fireworks before. The men helped the younger kids out for the most part. Unfortunately, some of the guys thought it would be fun to show the younger boys how to set explosives inside of a doll's head. We had to drag our fascinated sons away from that. Danya and Rhema had a good time being in charge of the camera once the sun went down. All the really cool fireworks pictures are ones that they took. They experimented with different settings to get different effects.
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".
