This week’s homeschool podcast episode is with special guest, Erin J. of Mahogany Homemaker.  She brings to us experience in homeschooling on a budget.  With limited resources and even on a shoestring budget, be encouraged that you can be ultimately in charge of your child’s home education, and with confidence.  Erin gives us some tips and pointers on how to do just that, and she shares a variety of resources that can help us.
