An Inside Look Into Our Big Crazy Adoptive Family!
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
I love finding materials and games for the kids' homeschooling in unexpected places. That's why, when people ask me the standard, "What curriculum do you use?" I always laugh and begin with, "Well..." because it's not an easy answer. We found these fun little mini dry erase books at Target for a buck. You can use them for everything from phonics to colors to shapes to categorizing and counting. I'm sure we'll think of more uses eventually. Katie really loves it, and Brianna likes helping both of the little girls with their work. Karyie still thinks we're just coloring. It's amazing what half a year difference in their ages makes.
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".
