Jamin and Wendy had six children in seven years. Even though they are both former school teachers, their two personalities are very different, and here they explore the differences and compromises that make their happy home. Wendy is an encouraging, optimistic, d-i-y, artsy stereotype of a kindergarten teacher. Jamin is practical, cynical, and contrary. Listen as they both share their perspectives in ridiculously candid fashion on homeschooling, family culture, housekeeping, and your questions. Join them on this crazy blessed journey to help their kids become the best versions of themselves.
