Our Story

We began homeschooling in 1990. We hung a bulletin board, displayed an American flag for the Pledge of Allegiance, and assembled our big stack of textbooks. By trying to recreate a public school in our basement, homeschooling quickly came to feel like a big, heavy sack of rocks.

Our homeschooling experience was transformed when we made homeschooling who we were instead of a burden. We carefully chose some curriculum, and we did a lot of lifestyle learning together. We took art lessons. We went on lots of field trips. We volunteered. We read books aloud.

In 1999 we began to combine our homeschool experience with our love of history to develop Bible-based, easy-to-use homeschool curriculum. Our curriculum uses narrative lessons, original source documents, rich literature, and hands-on activities to help parents and children love history.
