Short Lived Juror
I got called for jury duty again. Since it's by calendar year, I could, technically, get called again as early as January. Daniel came with me to chauffeur and bring Ryker to me when I needed to nurse him. I was really surprised that nursing a baby every two hours was not an automatic excuse to get out of serving. Normally, I like jury duty. It's interesting. But with all the kid's stuff going on and Ryker's demands on my time, it just wasn't feasible.
In the end, it took up a whole morning. I would up in the jury box waiting for a chance to explain why I'd be suffering a hardship if I had to serve. The judge dismissed me, thankfully.
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".
