    Thank you for this amazing feat. You two are quite the duo. I am just starting on this homeschool journey with 3 kids (6 year old twins and a 12 year old – all girls). We’ve decided on a classical curriculum based on the trivium (read The Well Trained Mind) and you guys have created a terrific one stop shop. I will definitely be purchasing your bundles! What amazing work you’ve put together!

    I fell in love with Layers of Learning when I saw the very first history unit! This one is equally awesome. It’s a fun, well-rounded curriculum.

    My kiddos loved learning about Ancient Egypt, more about stars and constellations and maps. They had fun creating their own maps for us to follow!
