E101: Chasing Dreams In A Hectic Life
Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today I speak on a topic that has always been important to Nathan and I. It's one that many parents may place on the back burner as we just try to juggle every day life of parenting and responsibilities. We all need to have a big picture of where we would like to see our life headed...on a personal as well as on a family level. Parenting never quite slows down regardless of us thinking, 'maybe in the next stage, I'll find more time'. Instead we need to change our mindset and think, 'how can we make this work?' What shifts need to occur when I know this can bring a greater good?So grab a seat by the fire as I discuss the importance of keeping our inner flame burning!If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice.We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have.Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!Show NotesHomeschool Consulting Services with Anita:Homeschool Consulting Services – The Homeschool Project PodcastOther Episodes you may enjoy:E96: Running A Successful Business and Homeschool- https://www.buzzsprout.com/777311/9298812Ongoing Community Support:Homeschool Consulting Services with Anita:Homeschool Consulting Services – The Homeschool Project PodcastOur Free Homeschool Getting Started Packet: https://thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2021/08/guide-to-getting-started-packet-1.pdfOur Free Ultimate Family Camping / Outdoor Checklist: https://thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2021/08/camping-checklist-2.pdfThe Waldock Way: https://www.thewaldockway.com/ref/76/Wild Learning Curriculum: https://discoverwildlearning.com/?ref=927All About Reading: https://www.allaboutlearningpress.net/go.php?id=2109"We are a participant in an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to affiliated sites."

Special Bonus: Debunking Homeschool Fears
Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have two certified teachers joining us for the conversation, both of which are my sisters. Emily is a homeschool mom to 3 young boys with several years of experience, teaching at the Elementary level.  And Paulette is mom to two and currently still teaches at the upper grade levels and has been for the past 15 years.This is an episode from last year but we felt the topic is encouraging as well as one that is important. It stems from the common doubts we have in homeschooling our children. What if I fail my child? Can I do this? Am I qualified? Aren't the schools more equipped to educate my child? We have assumptions when it comes to many of these questions that aren't always true.So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to Florida to debunk some of these doubts and fears!If you like what you hear and have enjoyed our show, please show your appreciation by subscribing to our Podcast and leaving us a review on your Podcast App of choice. We would love to hear from you so please email us with any comments or questions you have. Visit us and all of our content, including our blog, at www.thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.comAs always, let's Light A Fire They Can't Put OutThank you for listening!Ongoing Community Support:Our Free Homeschool Getting Started Packet: https://thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2021/08/guide-to-getting-started-packet-1.pdfOur Free Ultimate Family Camping / Outdoor Checklist: https://thehomeschoolprojectpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2021/08/camping-checklist-2.pdfThe Waldock Way: https://www.thewaldockway.com/ref/76/Wild Learning Curriculum: https://discoverwildlearning.com/?ref=927All About Reading: https://www.allaboutlearningpress.net/go.php?id=2109"We are a participant in an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to affiliated sites."

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Jen Myers joining us. Jen is an entrepreneur, founder of Homeschool CEO, and longtime homeschool mom. Over the past 17 years, she has homeschooled 4 kids while building 3 multi-six figure businesses. It all started in 2004, when her life came to a crossroads. The traditional school system wasn’t working for her family, and their second grader and preschooler needed more than the school system could provide.Back then, homeschooling wasn’t even on their radar and they had a thriving automotive repair shop. Was it even possible to be successful at BOTH homeschooling and entrepreneurship? Through a crazy turn of events, Jen decided to try out homeschooling. She quickly learned that running both the business and homeschool was possible AND she didn’t have to feel guilty about it.  That’s why Homeschool CEO was created. To connect, empower, and inspire women who are building more than a side hustle, all while educating the next generation of leaders, who will change the world.So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to Iowa and discuss how you can homeschool and build a wildly successful business AT THE SAME TIME! Quick reminder.

E95: Home Ed Series: Homeschooling The Early Years with Erin Loechner from Other Goose
Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Erin Loechner joining us. Erin is a bestselling author, founder of Other Goose, and homeschooling mom of 3. After traveling the world and searching for an all-inclusive classroom that valued play, freedom, and structure, Erin discovered the solution in her own backyard: homeschooling.But when the time came to choose an educational plan for her kids under the age of 7, the search wasn’t so simple. Where was the methodology that valued all philosophies of learning? Where was the boxed curriculum that didn’t box out the parent? Where was the simple homeschooling strategy that held space for open-ended discovery?Other Goose was born from these questions. Together with a team of thought-leaders, childhood development experts, research scholars, and environmentalists, Erin welcomes all learners. So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to the Midwest to discuss simple and fun homeschooling for the early years!Quick reminder. With Fall approaching and the leaves changing, we are excited to announce the release of our Free Ultimate Family Camping/Outdoor Checklist! Nathan and I have been camping for years with and without kids. So we put together this checklist in hopes to help other families wanting to get out and camp more.
