I posted on the Introduce Yourself sticky...but wanted to say hi over here. I'm Christine. I have a 5 year old daughter, who was 5 on Feb 1st and a son who will be 3 at the end of June. I'm totally new to homeschooling and while I do have an El. Ed. degree, STILL find myself feeling out of my element! Just want to say, "hi!" and I look forward to becoming a part of your community.

WELCOME!! I'm Chrystal. I've got one who finished 1st grade today, and I've got a toddler. I also have an education degree (PreK-12 music & science), but it doesn't help with homeschooling. Trust me.

Ask all the questions you want. Everyone here has been totally clueless at some point unless they were homeschooled themselves.

I'm from Ohio. I used to be on JM back in '06 and '07 while we were going through infertility and my pregnancy with my son, but then wandered so its been a long time! Anyway, I don't think I have to do anything for Kindergarten in Ohio, as far as telling the school that I'm homeschooling, so I THINK I'm in the clear with that until next year. But I think starting then I will have to do the whole 900 hours thing.

Ahhh...I'm sure I will have plenty of questions, wondering whats normal, etc as time goes on.
