Company Christmas Party
I am so very thankful that Daniel's company, Level 3 Communications, hosts an annual Christmas party. Katie really wanted to meet Santa this year, but I just can't wait hours in line with 10 kids at a mall to meet him. We tell our kids that Santa is a fun tradition that families enjoy pretending about, but we don't personally do all that. I want my kids to know that we wouldn't lie to them so that they don't someday question whether God is true. But Katie asked us to pretend with her a bit this year, so we did. She wrote him a letter and we helped her address it for the North Pole. She told him that she knows he is real, because she met him at her daddy's work.
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".
