School at Home

For several years, Caci Nance and her husband discussed homeschooling their four children. They also discussed expanding their dairy farm. “We decided the middle of a pandemic is the time to open an on-farm creamery,” she says with a laugh. With an incredibly busy schedule and a Charlotte Mason philosophy, Caci began homeschooling in July and recently finished the first 12 week quarter of the school year. Even as a former teacher, Caci recognizes that homeschooling doesn’t have to be a carbon copy of traditional schooling, and she discusses how she’s had to adjust her mindset to make...

School at Home

As an urban mom in California, Rebecca and I have vastly different lives, but still found plenty in common to talk about! In this episode, Rebecca describes how she is making room for “school” while she and her husband work from home in their 2-bedroom apartment. We also talk about the challenges she’s expecting for her daughter, who will be using an ipad and chromebook for school, and isn’t familiar with either of them. But my favorite part of the conversation was discussing ways to foster creativity in children. Links: Rebecca’s Podcast: Instagram: Rebecca’s Art: Instagram: ...
