WHAT WE DO

We make our homes one big family classroom where everyone learns together, then we share our favorite ways to learn with you in our Layers of Learning curriculum and on this site.  We'll also help you juggle kids, homemaking, and teaching joyfully.

WHY WE DO IT

We have big families. We wanted a simple, affordable, family-style curriculum for our favorite subjects: history, geography, science, and art.  After years of homeschooling we finally created it, and we knew we couldn't keep it to ourselves.

WHO WE ARE

Karen and Michelle. . . sisters, homemakers, and veteran homeschoolers, not to mention full time multi-tasking ninjas.  We have college degrees, but we count our life experience even more valuable.  Boy, do we love learning.  The ten kids between us proves it.

MINI CASTLE CRAFT

This is my kind of craft.  Print it, hand it to the kids, walk out of the room.  -Michelle

6 TRAITS OF WRITING RUBRIC

WAX RESIST ART

This project is amazing because kids can get really great results, you don't have to be a professional artist.  -Karen
