GOAT Homeschooling with Erin and Amanda

Welcome to GOAT Homeschooling with Erin and Amanda. We've created the podcast we wish WE could've listened to all these years we've been home educating our kids. We will discuss the rights and wrongs of trying to homeschool for the "long haul," in other words, past those first five years ... and what we've learned works and doesn't. It's time to have the conversation with other homeschoolers about getting your kids to the finish line in a strong and excellent way. We've got a lot of great info to share and we're looking forward to having you listen in. Find us wherever you listen to podcasts.
