A must listen!
My new fave homeschool podcast! Just listened through episode 5 "You Don't have to do it All: Getting Started with Homeschooling". And, ladies, this is an episode for all homeschoolers, not just newbies. I found myself nodding along and breathing deeper than before. Cait and Kara are open and honest. Bringing the real along with the inspring. Thanks, sisters!
Worth it's weight in gold
I had previously rated this four stars based on the lenght of the podcast and after listening to a few, I had to come back and change it to five stars. The content of these podcasts are worth their weight in gold. I have already listened to the Julie Bogart episode a few times because of how inspirational it was and so that I can take notes. With each episode of this podcast I am realizing that I am really not alone in this Homeschool journey afterall. The girls speak about finding a tribe and how not having a tribe is better than finding a bad one, which is true. I don't have a tribe yet, and I have been unlucky in the ones around me, but until I find my tribe, this podcast gets me through those days where I am unsure of myself. Thank you Cait and Cara for making me feel a little less alone.
Since I don’t know many homeschoolers in real life, it is so nice to have virtual homeschoolers to listen to. I related to so many things they had to say and it really made me feel like I am not alone. Highly recommend to all homeschoolers!
