What do you hope to get out of this board? Other moms that know what I'm going through. I don't know anyone IRL that home schools, and everyone we know thinks we are crazy.

Do you have a style or curriculum you prefer? I'm too new at this to know, yet.

Does your local government regulate homeschooling in any way? They have to learn history, language arts, science, math, and reading, and are supposed to learn for at least 1000hrs per year, 600 of which must be in the subjects I mentioned. We are supposed to keep a log of hours and a portfolio of their work and grades. No one ever checks on us, though, as the only time they can request to view our stuff is by a judge's order.

Anything else? Ummm...nope.
