    BONUS: Getting Wild + Free | with Greta Eskridge

    Julie is getting ready to go down to Texas to present at the Wild + Free (https://www.bewildandfree.org/frisco) conference, so today we talk with someone who’s been getting Wild + Free since the inception of this beautiful gem of a community.

    Greta Eskridge is a go-getter creative entrepreneur with enough projects to keep a team busy! Greta runs a website, a blog, a podcast, is an avid Instagrammer, and has written for and spoken at nearly every Wild + Free Conference. On top of that, she is a second-generation homeschooler to four adorable kids, wife to her artist husband Aaron, and “fur mama” to the family’s rescue dog, Shadow.

    Nature is Greta’s self-proclaimed “Happy Place,” and she is best known in the home school community for her passion for taking her children into the great outdoors and helping them make nature a source of joy in their lives – and she’s even writing a book about this topic!

    BONUS: The Brave Learner: Happy Book Birthday!

    We are so excited because it is the Book Birthday of Julie’s brand new book, The Brave Learner: Finding Everyday Magic in Homeschool, Learning, and Life!

    We’ve heard from a lot of brave homeschooling parents throughout this season of the show, and looking forward, we want to hear from more of you Brave Learners out there: How are you rethinking curiosity, online gaming, or the role of collaboration in your home school – and what does that look like in your unique family?

    We can change the conversation around education by being homeschoolers who take pride in what we do; we have a contribution to make back into the story of schooling, learning, and education, and this community is here to make it!

    S5E12: Routines, Chaos, and Big Goals—Oh My!

    Today we’re joined by five wonderful moms from the CO Springs Homeschool Mamas Group.

    So instead of focusing on just one question, we’ll tackle one from each of them, representing the wide variety of problems that every homeschooling parent has to tackle throughout their home education journey.

    S5E11: Breaking Free From Multitasking | with Courtney Moyer

    S5E11: Breaking Free From Multitasking | with Courtney Moyer

    Courtney Moyer, a homeschooling mother of four (plus a young niece), wrote to Julie saying, “The consistent homeschool challenge that has confronted me is homeschooling multiple children at multiple levels, lacking expertise to multitask... It seems that chaos overrides my agenda on most days... I know if I could understand a way to multitask, anxiety would be minimal, creating a hospitable atmosphere that's desirable for my children.”

    Courtney’s concern is one that almost every homeschooler deals with at some point (really, almost every parent), and our natural inclination is that doing everything requires multitasking expertise. However, that’s not the case at all – especially not in homeschooling!

    So today, Julie discusses how our traditional notions of education interfere with our homeschooling opportunities – and how you can break free from multitasking to offer all of your children a more complete and joyful education!

    S5E10: Prepping Your Teen for Adulthood | with Myah St. John

    S5E10: Prepping Your Teen for Adulthood | with Myah St. John

    Our guest Myah St. John homeschools three children (plus a newborn), and her oldest child, 14, is on the verge of high school. Myah’s always embraced a one-room schoolhouse model for her family, but she finds herself floundering trying to balance high school with elementary school... and as her teenage daughter starts to become a young woman.

    Why do our children become these people we don’t understand? How do they transform so quickly from a young kid happy to be part of the team to a young adult with their own opinions, wants, and needs – which they are more than happy to share with us, loudly?

    We don’t always think about this transition in our children’s lives, but eventually, your pleasant young children will become teens, and they’ll start trying to figure out how they can be individuals in a homeschool household. This can be a big challenge, for both your and your child, but Julie is here to offer a helping hand.

FInding Balance in High School

Julie's insights come from years in the trenches, and are always an invitation to walk down freedom road. I always come away a little lighter, a litlle more encouraged, a little more inspired to keep going with our homeschooling journey. Thank you so much for real actionable insights for keeping balance, sanity, joy in high school!
