At heart, Laura is a sunshine-loving southern Californian. Homeschooling has been an integral part of her family’s culture since 2010. All six of her children (ages six through sixteen) are currently acquiring their education at home. She has enjoyed the ups and downs of her journey with her amazing husband, Aaron, for twenty years. They currently reside in Maryland, where Laura loves to read, cook, hike, study, spend time in nature, and take lots of historical field trips. She also loves photography, horses, and especially the continued grace she receives on a daily basis from our loving Savior, Jesus Christ.
Patti is a Maryland native who continues to live there with Mike, her amazing best friend and hubby of 19 years. They have three awesome kiddos ranging in age from eleven to sixteen. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in early childhood education and taught preschool for many years before becoming a stay-at-home domestic engineer. When her oldest was in fifth grade, she and Mike decided that traditional school wasn’t meeting their family’s needs, so they began their homeschooling adventures! Now over five years later, they continue to love the freedom and togetherness that homeschooling brings to their family. Her homeschool reflects her love of self-led discoveries and hands-on learning. When not busy with building curriculums or managing house and home, she loves to vegetable garden, organize anything you put in her path, read fantasy books, and spend as much time in the mountains of western Maryland as possible.
