Julie Casey home shools her children Todd and Jack in the kitchen of their rural Union Star home.
For the first two years of her oldest son’s life, Julie Casey was a working mom. And she was miserable.
“I was always exhausted, always stressed out, never had enough time to spend with Andrew (or) do the things that I wanted to do with him,” she says.
Many moms thrive balancing their professional and personal lives. Julie, though, decided it wasn’t for her. She left her job as a computer programmer and started a home day care center to continue bringing in an income.
