You know what I did? I bought the same books and materials her school was using (A Beka) - that's what she has used since K4 and it's way ahead of the public school system and it includes the Christian view on everything. I love, love, love it! It's very simple for me to figure out.
I ordered the DVD's to start with but returned them shortly after - they put her and I both to sleep! Here is their website: http://www.abeka.com/ If you think you guys would be interested in the DVD's, the website to that is: http://www.abekaacademy.org/
Well I found his school books online! The ones he has been using so I think I am going to go with them. And get this ... If I am reading it right I can get his whole school year of books plus the grade keys for $188.00!!!! I am paying for him basically to go to a building. I am planning other things as well for weekly activities. I told his teacher today she is upset because she adores him but I simply can't afford private school right now and I WON'T send him to public. I hear great things about homeschooling so I hope it works out.

Yes, even this day in age families are still being harassed.
