Karen, a mother of four who has homeschooled her kids for more than six years with her husband, Bob, has a bachelor's degree in child development with an emphasis in education. She lives in Utah where she gardens, teaches piano, and plays excruciating board games with her kids. Karen is our resident Arts expert and English and editing guru {most necessary as Michelle regularly and carelessly mangles the English language and occasionally steps over the bounds of polite society}. We both pitch in on Geography, in case you were wondering. Michelle and her husband, Cameron, homeschooling now for over a decade, whip their six boys into shape on their ten acres in beautiful Idaho country. Michelle earned a bachelors in biology, making her the resident Science expert, though she is mocked by her friends for being the Botanist with the Black Thumb of Death. She also is the go-to for History and Government, being almost, but not quite, well-read. She believes in staying up late, hot chocolate, and a no whining policy.
