    Our family is enjoying this family-style curriculum so much! Each unit we are digging into the topics with fun, meaningful activities and learning in a way I wish I had learned growing up. Plus, we are all learning together (kids ages 4-14). Thanks you so much for creating this resource!

    The extra detail that is put into the curriculum such as the Youtube video playlist is amazing! It saves so much time for me to have the videos already found and linked.
