 What we don’t do {Episode 45}

There is plenty that the sisters don’t do. (Especially right now!) Because none of us can do it all.

And they want to hear from you too. Head over to the show notes at to share what you don’t do in this season of life!

Never Board Learning:

Hi, sisters! Cait here. Want to have some fun??

As a lifelong gamer, school psychologist, and homeschool mom, I have witnessed- time and time again- the power of play.

I believe that homeschooling can be almost all fun and games. Now, does that mean it will be all sunshine, rainbows, and laughter? Heck, no! But I do believe we could all be having a heckuva lot more fun!

And that’s why I created Never Board Learning and I’d love for you to join the fun!

A playful mindset can transform your homeschool routine and family life. Best part? You don’t need an overflowing game closet to get started. You can be a gameschooler today with just a deck of cards. Let me show you how.

Join Never Board Learning, a private online community for creative parents and educators who love play-based learning and gameschooling

Never Board Learning membership includes a private community forum, guest speakers, Q&As, day in the life family spotlights, a private blog, and an ever-growing library filled with printable resources including documentation resources, challenges, and print-and-play activities!

    This is the most relatable episode to date! So many of
    thesee I don’t do either. Such as
    Homeschool planning
    Finishing a unit study, or
    Keeping a car that is not a mobile biohazard.
    Solidarity, sisters!
