Mari Farthing is a wife, mom and the editor of MetroFamily Magazine. A work-at-home mom for eleven years, Mari tries to juggle it all. She sometimes succeeds, sometimes fails, and constantly rewrites the to-do list that manages her days.
Learning, whether it comes from a teacher in a public or private school classroom or at home from a parent, is not meant to teach you “everything you will ever need to know”. It is meant to give you a foundation of learning that will help you in the future.
Kami is a mother to two, a wife and a licensed in-home childcare provider. Her children's education has always been a priority, but now she and her husband are making their education a MISSION! Share in the McManus family's adventures as they strap on their educational combat boots and charge the front lines to invade the world of homeschooling!
Stephanie Clinton is a SAHM to two boys ages 7 and 2. She loves their hugs and kisses but does not love wiping their snotty noses. Stephanie and her husband have been married for 11 years. In her free time (if there ever is any) she can be found reading, volunteering in her community, cross-stitching, singing, avoiding housework but most of all blogging about her stay-at-home adventures.
