Cleaning and Painting the Garage
It's a big job, but somebody's got to do it. I vote for Daniel and the kids. Actually, it was a group effort. Katie and Karyie even helped sweep with their tiny little brooms. We usually clean out the garage once at the beginning of Spring and once in the Fall. This time we decided to go ahead and paint it, too. We just stuck with white. We had big plans for letting the kids do art work on the walls, but we ran short on time. Danya and Polly helped with the painting quite a bit.
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".
