Who We Are

The quick run-down:

We're a homeschooling family and we've been homeschooling for a looooooooooooong time! Our kids were homeschooled from kindergarten through high-school, and we finished teaching our youngest kiddo in 2016.

We are:

  • A dad - Background in criminal justice & computers
  • A mom - I love creating and illustrating educational materials with my own unique style! I am the author and illustrator of The Science of Seasons and Beowulf's Grammar books.
  • Homeschool graduate Hannah
    • Has a Psychology degree, International Studies degree, and TESL/TEFL Certificate
    • Interned in Japan teaching English to Japanese students through Osaka University of Economics and Law
    • Is fluent in reading, writing & speaking Japanese
    • Published writer
    • Teaches English to 7-11th graders at a private school in Japan
    • Married to a wonderful Japanese Christian who is going to seminary school in Japan
  • Homeschool graduate Bear
    • Is a retired Army sergeant going back to school, married to a sweet Southern girl, with an adorable son - has a degree in collision repair and refinishing (with honors)
  • Otter, our last homeschool graduate
    • was a Police Explorer
    • was a CHP Explorer
    • Eagle Scout
  • Various assorted critters such as our dog and maybe a stray praying mantis or pet bug on occasion

No, our kids really don't have names like Bear and Otter...those are their Internet names!

Question: Will you review my product?

Answer: Email me and we'll see! I love writing reviews! Our review policy is as follows: Anyone who sends me an item to review agrees to indemnify and hold me/us harmless for anything I may post about it.

Question: So why do a lot of your worksheets and printables says "OurLosBanos" or "MemorablePlaces" on them?

Answer: Our homeschool materials used to be located on another website we run (OurLosBanos.com). MemorablePlaces is a hobby business of ours. When I moved everything over to Guest Hollow, there was no way I wanted to redo the hundreds of printables to reflect the new domain name. So, that's why they still have the old website name on them.
