I, Jen, am wife to Bryan of almost 18 years and mom to 6 precious children ages 14, 13, 11, 9, 7, and 5. Our family has been homeschooling for 10 years now. We tend to be very eclectic in a relaxed approach to learning with Unit Studies, some CM, and a whole lot of reading thrown into the works. We prefer to read what Charlotte Mason referred to as living books. We collect children's picture books and our current home library contains a little over 5000 of them. In addition to The Curriculum Choice, I write reviews of homeschool products for the TOS Homeschool Crew and Timberdoodle, as well as book reviews for various publishing companies. When not teaching my children, I enjoy cooking/baking, writing poetry, blogging, and reading. You can find our family blog at Adventures in Unsell Land.
