Ok, so I live in Texas. I'm wondering if there is any reason my kids would kicked off of CHIP if we started homeschooling. I'm wondering because the applications always ask if the children attend school or not.

Nope. Homeschooling is a legal form of schooling in TX. You shouldn't have any issues. If you do, all you need to do is give them a copy of the withdrawal you give the school and tell them your child is attending _____ (make up a name for your school like "So-n-so Academy" or whatever. Doesn't matter.) If they still hassle you, join HSLDA. I honestly don't think they'll do anything at all though. HS'ing is really popular here. You can get a free HS'ing ID card at Homeschool Buyer's Co-op, too, which will get you teacher/student discounts at bookstores and museums and such sometimes, too.

Thanks! Yep, I just got off of the phone with them and they said that it won't affect eligibility at all. Also, I just got off of the phone with my husband as well and he said that homeschooling the children is OK! He was even ok with taking them out of school now, but I said that I want to let them finish out the school year. There are only 8 more weeks left anyway. Turned out, my husband was talking about it with a coworker of his who is much older - 62 - and he said that if had children right now with the school system the way it is, he's homeschool too. I think that helped make hubby's decision. Yippee!
