Charlotte lives in Northern California with her best friend, who also happens to be her husband of 24 years. As a second-generation homeschooler, teaching their four children has been a main part of her life. Her son and two daughters have graduated from high school and have moved on to college and beyond, so she is enjoying the one-on-one time with her youngest daughter, who is in middle school. When not schooling she is busy with 4-H lambs and goats, reading, cooking, and spending time with her family and church. You can find Charlotte’s blog at Joyful Hearts and Faces.

Tess had planned to balance a semi-professional career in theatre with being a wife and mother. God had other plans. She and her husband John have been married for 25 years and have four amazing daughters. She was first introduced to the idea of home education when her oldest daughter was a mere 14 months old. Three of her daughters have graduated their home school but Tess continues to home educate her medically fragile, special needs, miracle girl. Tess joined the crew in June 2010 as it began its 3rd year. She lives in wet, rainy, but beautiful western Washington with her family. You can find Tess blogging at Circling Through This Life.
