As a homeschooling parent, it can be difficult to find a little bit of alone time to catch up on tasks or just take a breather. In this week’s episode of the podcast, I’m sharing the steps and guidelines we set up with another homeschooling family to have a kid swap twice a month that allowed both moms to have some downtime and all of the kids to have fun together. It was a seriously great set up, and we all have wonderful memories of it. I would highly recommend homeschooling families, or even just those with kids at home all the time (or for summertime), try it out.
In the ending segment, I share one thing that’s making me happy right now: the site Art for Kids. Listen to find out why. (Plus, go check it out for yourself.)
