It's official, I am going to homeschool my kids. After my husband and I made that decision, I thought, now what. I, of course, did what most people would do. I did as much research as possible. I have read many books, looked online, read many blogs, contacted friends and family that have or are currently homeschooling just to make sure I have a complete understanding of what I am getting myself into.
My favorite book to date is So You're Thinking About Homeschooling by Lisa Whelchel. It is a very easy read and it gave me a quick overview of the different styles of homeschooling out there. One of my favorite blogs is http://www.simplehomeschool.net/ They have a few contributors, so it is always nice to hear different perspectives. Of all the people I have talked to, everyone just loves what they are doing. I think you would have to, otherwise, why do it. There are always some complaints, but nothing over the top.
I keep asking myself, now what? Should I purchase curriculum? Should we just live life and see where it takes us? Should I set up a "classroom" for the kids or just teach wherever they want to learn? There are so many questions, none of which I know the answer, so I will work my way through them and see where we end up.
