Show Notes

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Erin Loechner joining us. Erin is a bestselling author, founder of Other Goose, and homeschooling mom of 3. After traveling the world and searching for an all-inclusive classroom that valued play, freedom, and structure, Erin discovered the solution in her own backyard: homeschooling.

But when the time came to choose an educational plan for her kids under the age of 7, the search wasn’t so simple. Where was the methodology that valued all philosophies of learning? Where was the boxed curriculum that didn’t box out the parent? Where was the simple homeschooling strategy that held space for open-ended discovery?

Other Goose was born from these questions. Together with a team of thought-leaders, childhood development experts, research scholars, and environmentalists, Erin welcomes all learners. 

So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to the Midwest to discuss simple and fun homeschooling for the early years!

Quick reminder. With Fall approaching and the leaves changing, we are excited to announce the release of our Free Ultimate Family Camping/Outdoor Checklist! Nathan and I have been camping for years with and without kids. So we put together this checklist in hopes to help other families wanting to get out and camp more. See link below for download.
