Just Us Girls
Sometimes, on a Tuesday, Daniel really needs to sleep because there is an event in the evening happening. On those days, Katie, Karyie and I have a special time together, just us girls. We have deep conversations about things like why boys are gross and how Katie wants to be an airplane flyer when she grows up. Karyie wants to be a mommy or whatever Katie is going to be. This photo of Katie on the slide seems so priceless to me. She will never be this perfect size to do this again. I wish I could freeze frame her at this size and remember every funny conversation we've had. Her mind and her curiosity astound me and keep me laughing all day long.
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".
