Spring Camping Trip
Daniel and his parents took the kids camping for Mother's Day this year. It was everything they hoped it would be. For Jordan, Michael and Karyie, this was a new experience. I love that they are making special memories with their grandparents. I also love that I got to have the weekend to myself, even if I was very sick the whole time.
They took our big 'ole fifteen passenger van off roading a little bit. They went for a hike and explored the caves and water falls. They even got to check out a fish hatchery.
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".
