    Homeschooling with Candra: Podcast Episode 13

    01/09/2017 Duración: 46min

    It’s been a year. Literally and figuratively. I catch you up on my life from Georgia to Mississippi and back to Georgia. I talk about our schedule last year, mom friends, how we did dinners, husbands long hours, Classical Conversations, how we finished up our year with a 5th grader, 3rd grader, and a 1st grader. Then our summer and how we’ve transitioned to this new year doing school with a 6th grader, 4th grader, and 2nd grader. Did I mention a preschooler running around writing on the walls? Also discussing starting Essentials at CC for the first time (AKA maybe I will learn grammar finally). If nothing else you will walk away feeling more normal, less crazy, and think you're a better mom than me. For real though, I hope you are encouraged, learn something, laugh, and enjoyed this while you folded laundry.
