Okay, don’t laugh…but there’s a local magazine that wants to do a story on me. Of course the topic is having a large family. I swear, our family is a novelty around here. It’s so rare that anyone has more than 3 children where I live.
At first I didn’t know how to feel about the idea, and I wasn’t going to go through with it. But then I thought, hmmmm….this magazine will be circulated to all of the homes all over our entire county…how can I make the best use of that publicity? I think it could be a great opportunity to get the word out about carseat safety and Kyle’s foundation. I am going to mention that and provide Kyle’s website. I also will be mentioning the little 11 month old baby, Micah, who is severely brain injured and needs volunteers to help his mother with his daily therapy program (the same program that we did on Audriana many years ago!) He lives in our county and I’m going to be helping with his therapy but we need many more volunteers…so what a great way to help that family as well. I’ll also mention my Arbonne business and the products — hopefully I will get more clients and consultants on my team. My goal with Arbonne is to make enough money so that 1) Rich can stop working overtimes and be home more with our family, and 2) to donate enough to Kyle’s foundation to ensure that there is never a waiting list for carseat recipients!!
They came last week to do the photo shoot at our house. Below are some of the pictures that will be in the article:
This one will be the cover of the magazine, and below it will read: “Meet Katrina….”
They wanted to highlight our homeschooling…..
I love this group shot of me and the kids!
And of course the shot of them all in their carseats in our 15 passenger van!! This photo is important to me because it will coincide with the mention of Kyle’s foundation and the importance of extended rear-facing and extended 5-point harnessing.
I’m a bit embarrasssed that this magazine will have my face on the cover — what will the neighbors think??!!!!
