Getting to Know You!

Here are some of the kids who are being homeschooled. Aren't they cute?! Be sure to check out their great work  here .

Jasmine is almost three years old now. She was born with congenital cytomegalovirus but has overcome a rough start and is only mildly developmentally delayed--mainly speech. Some of her favorite things to do are play with her talking Teletubbie "Po," sing along to the B-52s "Rock Lobster," eat anything and everything--especially if someone else is eating it, explore in the forest with her big brothers and sister, and snuggle with mom or dad.
 

Chris is five years old. He has Fragile X Syndrome and Autism. He is moderate to severely delayed, but has made great progress since joining our family when he was 19-months old. Some of his favorite things to do are fix all kinds of different meals in his pretend kitchen, play dress-up with his big sister, Hannah, ride the toy horse with his little sister, Jasmine and watch Barney on t.v.

Hannah is seven. She doesn't have any disabilities, but since mom runs this website and the two younger kids (Jasmine and Chris) got to have their pictures on the internet, we couldn't very well leave her out. Hannah is homeschooled and is really into horses. She is saving all her birthday and christmas money so that she can buy her own horse. Right now she has a role in our community play, "Oklahoma," in which she plays one of the school-girls. She loves to sing, dance and do science, ski and play soccer.

Karsten is ten. He doesn't have any disabilities either, but with the other three kids (Jasmine, Chris, Hannah) being included on the page, we didn't want to leave him out! He is homeschooled and is interested in space and science. He likes to sing and participates in our area's children's choir. He also just made his acting debut as the steward in the junior version of the play, "Into The Woods," at the local middle school. He likes to play soccer, basketball and baseball. In his spare time he enjoys reading about the Loch Ness Monster and building with Legos.
