Kara Anderson is a mom, freelance writer, and photography aficionado who writes about homeschooling, mothering, and more at her blog. She is also a contributor to Simple Homeschool.
Kara joins us on this episode of the podcast to share about her homeschooling journey with her two children. Her personal story of unexpectedly jumping into homeschooling with an active little boy who was more interested in exploring his world than in “sitting on the line” is one that resonates with many.
She has wisdom to share about sifting through philosophies, drawing from different methods, and ultimately making individual choices about what works best for your family. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy listening to this inspiring interview!
