Girls Gone Shopping
Shopping with my oldest two girls, well, sort of. Polly's on loan from her parents for this school year. It's been nice having another older girl in the house. It feels like having a friend to talk to more than having another daughter. We went to several different stores, but Polly had a really hard time finding dresses that matched her style and fit right. I've been learning more about fashion in South Korea. They seem to like covering up the upper body, but exposing a LOT of leg. So you'll see a girl wearing a shirt buttoned up to her neck paired with really short shorts or a mini skirt.
Fortunately, for my peace of mind, Danya shares my preference for cute, but modest, clothing. She really wanted me to buy her this jacket. Sadly, her odds of getting me to say, "yes" won't improve until tax return season.
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".
