What courses through your veins? What passions do you have that you are not living towards?

Join me in this podcast and learn some of the deep emotions that I am going through. I remember trying to go to sleep this night and realizing it was a lost cause.

I talk about the car, Lucy, dejunking, and even about an amazing neighbor who stopped by and told me about her home schooling experience and the difference between her older 2 sons who did normal school, and her younger 2 who she homeschooled.

What better way to discuss education and the school systems than talking to real life kids! Join me and my kids in this episode as we talk around the school topic. Learn about the school they have been going to, their immersion experience, and their thoughts and feelings about leaving everything behind.
