Holly Winhoven and I met several years ago at a homeschool support group. She reminded me of a modern day cowgirl and… I have always wanted to be a cowgirl! We hit it off as friends and our children are similar ages.
Our interview is about what a strong woman Holly is. She held down the ranch for a year while her husband was deployed with the National Guard overseas. Dealing with daily life and two kids is hard enough without a spouse around, but add in homeschooling and there is a balance to be found.
Many of you may be facing this situation or have already dealt with a deployment. Holly has some good tips on how she coped with all the situations that occurred during the year. I hope you enjoy our conversation, the barking dog, crowing rooster and children running through the house.
