What do you get when you have five kids and a mom (who is NOT middle-aged... Since she plans on living until she is 100, she cannot be middle-aged yet) who is struggling to learn a new school system? A deadly combination!!!
The kids have been accepted into the Arizona Virtual Academy this year and so we are having to learn a whole new system... This has not been an easy beginning. As you will see by the following pictures, it's been a very stressful couple of weeks!
Ok... Maybe it wasn't as bad as it is made out to look like in these pictures... But believe me... It felt like it! We have survived so far... BARELY!
The kids and I staged this massacre for their dad, when he got home from work.
It was some great comic relief for a very stressful day.
When we finally get this system learned it will be GREAT! I hope...
The Shuler Family Band is an inspiring family singing group with three generations of musicians singing a blend of bluegrass, quartet gospel, sacred hymns, country-western and cowboy music.
Paul Shuler, the grandfather of the family, began traveling and singing with his wife Bonieta in 1962. After moving to Arizona in the mid ’80s they started singing and recording with numerous groups in the Phoenix area. Paul blends smooth leads and harmonies, he plays mandolin, guitar and banjo. Bonieta (or Grandma) sings and plays bass fiddle and guitar.
Paul’s son Colin (who is an ordained minister in The Church of God) moved to Arizona with his wife Gerri and their six children in 2003. He plays guitar and saxophone and sings bass while Gerri sings clear sweet leads and harmonies.
Jacob is Colin’s oldest son and is a fantastic mandolin and guitar picker while his brother Philip is a mean bass fiddler. They each possess vibrant soulful voices and are often featured in our singings.
Lastly the three youngest Shulers—Sara, Megan and Thomas—often steal the show when they add their bright smiles and pure voices to make The Shuler Family Band a true family musical ensemble.
