Homeschool

You guys ROCK! My husband and I have contemplated homeschooling for a few years but never thought we could pull it off mostly due to our schedules at the time. With they way covid has made public schools, we have taken this opportunity to try homeschooling! We talked to our daughter about it and she seemed a little skeptical and nervous. Change is scary, We get it. Then, light bulb! We were outside and she was “studying” a grasshopper and caught him in a jar and showed us and explained all she knew and said what she wanted to learn. We looked at her and said, “THATS homeschooling!” Her eyes LIT up and is now totally on board! So I signed her up for khan academy and she can’t wait to try it! I’ve recommended you guys several times and I get so giddy talking about This podcast with all my friends and husband!

Mom-to-Mom Encouragement

Such a great podcast! I especially appreciate how encouraging, vulnerable and realistic Bonnie and Audrey are in their conversations relating to raising children and managing a household. They cover a variety of topics and I have enjoyed listening to each episode even if it’s not something directly applicable to my current stage of life.
