about us

We are a homeschooling family living in Melbourne, Australia. We consist of one Mama (Iris) and five smaller people.

We are three boys – Zeph , Tom and Oliver.

And two girls – Zoey and Lili

These aren’t our real names of course but names we have chosen to represent us in cyberspace.


Mama is an artist although these days most of her artistry involves taking care of the smaller people. We live on a suburban block in a three bedroom house in outer Melbourne. We hope to live an imaginative, creative and environmentally sustainable life that is filled with inexpensive beauty.
