How to Be a Homeschool Team, with S.D. & Gina Smith {Episode 52} The Homeschool Sisters Podcast


 How to Be a Homeschool Team, with S.D. and gina smith {Episode 52}

In this week’s episode, the sisters are joined by S.D. and Gina Smith – a homeschooling couple that shares their experience balancing life with homeschooling and working from home.

Sam is the author of the hugely popular Green Ember series of books, but he’s quick to point out that the characters he’s created wouldn’t be widely known if it wasn’t for Gina, his wife of 18 years who homeschools their 4 kids.

The Smiths talk candidly about avoiding interruptions when Dad works from home, respecting homeschooling as a vocation and even ideas for getting Dad on board if he’s resistant to the idea of homeschooling.

Plus, Sam shares a little about his newest book, The Wreck and Rise of Whitson Mariner, available Dec. 3.

You won’t want to miss this episode, and the sisters think it’s a perfect one to share with all the non-primary homeschool parents out there.

    This was one of my favorite podcasts from The Homeschool Sisters. Talking about the importance of being a team in our marriages as we approach homeschooling- even when the vast majority of the responsibility lies with one parent. THANK YOU S.D. and Gina for sharing. THANK YOU Cait and Kara for facilitating this much needed interview.
