AWANA Ornament Night
We remembered that it was "Make Your Own Ornament Contest" night at AWANA about an hour before we needed to be there. Pinterest to the rescue! I searched online for some quick ornament ideas. We ended up melting Karyie's extra hair beads inside of metal cookie cutters in the oven. It was such a success that all our other kids wanted to make one, too. Sadly, we arrived a few minutes too late for the boys to enter their ornaments in the contest, but their teachers gave them lots of compliments.
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".
