Adventures with the Klan

For those of you visiting my site for the first time, I thought I would introduce the Klan....

I am a stay-at-home-mother of five beautiful children. I have an education degree and plan to homeschool my children through graduation. I love to sew, crochet, knit and scrapbook, though with five kids it's hard to find time for my hobbies! Someday I would love to be a foster parent and an adoptive mom, too.

The Klan Leader is Mr. Prince. He is a 2nd grade teacher at a inner-city elementary school. He enjoys soccer, softball and street basketball and is an incredible father to the Klan.

Sid the Science Kid is my 7-year-old genius. He is obsessed with the solar system and the human body, loves soccer, enjoys being involved in Junior Bible Quiz and piano lessons, and will be entering the 3nd grade at Kellogg Academy this fall.

Princess Pea is my prissy little 5-year-old. She loves her ballet classes and says she wants to teach dance when she's older. Her other loves are drawing and reading. She will be starting first grade this coming fall.

Angelica Pickles is my spunky 4-year-old. She has loved babies since she was a baby herself and her favored doll is her beloved Asian doll, "Baby Tui". She has never been afraid to stand up to her siblings and often times is the leader of the pack, mostly by force. Force meaning "loud scream". She can be quite sweet, but still often shows her out-of-control-three-year-old stage.

Boo Boo is just 2-years-old. He is a very laid back baby and enjoys being the clown of the klan. All of his siblings adore him. His loves are balls, penguins, giraffes, and cars. He just 'goes with the flow' with a smile on his face.

Miracle Myra is the baby of the clan, just 7 months old. She's had a rough 7 months, but is progressing and we are still seeing many miracles in her life. She was asphyxiated at birth when her heart rate dropped and has since been diagnosed with microcephaly, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and cortical visual impairment. She is also very laid back and a very happy baby. She is our little miracle and we are so happy to have her.

Well, there is the formal introduction of the Klan and it's Leader. Hope you enjoy the Adventures!

Hey darlin', would you consider renaming or respelling "Klan"? The first time I saw your blog I thought of the KKK, and wondered if I should say something...I forgot about it, and then I sent a friend of mine a link to one of your posts to share something about the nieces and nephews, and she called me up in a horrified whisper--"Is the Klan?"

People who know you know that you are not in sympathy with the KKK (obvs), but honestly, most people think of that right away when they see it, and it's creepy. Especially since we're so white! :-D

Other than that, I LOVE reading your blog, and look forward to all the entries.

Your sis-in-law "Violet"
