This is episode 51 and today I’m here with Kaleena Amuchastegui talking about taking the homeschool leap.
Kaleena is a mama of 4 and co-author of The 5 Hour School Week along with her husband Aaron. She left all the comfort of living and learning the traditional way and and now through travel, open communication and a huge dose of trust, they are learning and thriving together as a family.

I share our adventure frolicking in fall at a state park.
