New homeschoolers can sometimes become overwhelmed with all the new duties a learning lifestyle entails. Having someone who knows what it’s like and how to get off to a good start can be a lifesaver. That’s why we’re interviewing Mary James today. She’s a long-time homeschooler (since 1989!) who founded a support group for new homeschoolers, and those who still feel a little new too. It’s called Smoothing the Way and we think you’ll love Mary’s story of Smoothing’s inspiration, founding, and growth. And be sure to stay to the end when we answer a very seasonal big question.
