Rethinking The Homeschool Dream

Hey, homeschoolers! My idea of the dream homeschool life has changed since I began teaching my kids more than 20 years ago. And I couldn’t be happier about it. One of the moms in Homeschool Sanity Circle on Facebook asked a related question that prompted me to do this episode. What is the homeschool dream anyway? We’ll discuss it in a moment, but first I want to invite you to join me at the Great Homeschool Conventions this year. Yes, they are going to be held in person. The first two conventions are in Greenville, South Carolina and St. Charles, Missouri. I will be speaking on homeschool sanity and parenting and of course, sharing Grammar Galaxy and the other books I’ve written. To learn more and to register, go to GreatHomeschoolConventions.com. I also want to take this time to thank my sponsor: CTC Math.
