101 PRACTICAL HOMESCHOOLING IDEAS EP. 002: Jessica Ricks Interview

In this episode, I interview my wife, Jessica Ricks, about her reasons for homeschooling, her early challenges when she was starting and how she overcame them.

Jessica mentions how important a Salt Lake City Homeschool Convention was to building her confidence and getting her off on the right foot because of the networks that she was able to establish.

She shares an idea for world geography that our kids still remember with excitement. See the Country Reports Idea post for details.
