Always a breath of fresh air

I’m new to homeschooling. I’ve decided to take on homeschooling my own kids as well as their cousins. Each week I face new challenges as we wade through the muddy waters of the first year of homeschool life. Each week, I turn to this podcast for guidance. Each week I feel ready for the next challenge. I realize that these muddy waters are rich and that I can do this. Thank you for helping to fill my cup when I need it most. Thank you for your courage, experience and wisdom.
