Her Braided Christmas Fauxhawk
Karyie loved her new frauxhawk. She and I spent about 5 hours working on this together. Her patience is getting better. She also wanted red yarn woven in along with her new rainbow colored beads. I tried to choose Christmas colored ones. I like this style because it's not as difficult as some we've done, so it's faster. It's also somewhat versatile, since I can change it into a double French braid, too. She watches endless episodes of My Little Pony while I do her hair. I think I can name almost all the ponies now. Her favorite is still Rainbow Dash. Katie loves Twilight Sparkle. I think those two ponies characters perfectly match Karyie and Katie. The one is a high speed daredevil and the other is a bookworm.
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".
