We were a homeschooling family for our 24 & 17 yr old, & will homeschool our 2 & 3 yr old when the time comes. Home schooling doesn't have to be expensive. You can find used supplies and books and the local libraries and community colleges have lots of free resources. You don't have to be a genius to home school, but it helps to be disciplined and consistent. You'll have a blast and you'll never regret the time spent with your children. You can PM me if you have any other ???

Homeschooling can be done on a pretty limited budget, you just need to be aware that if you're getting all your resources secondhand, some information might be out of date, and you might want to supplement the info found there with internet research. The internet also has TONS of free online sites games to teach grammar, phonics, math, science, etc.
If you're interested in homeschooling from a non-religious point of view, I have a group for secular homeschoolers.

I home-school my 8th grader. Aside from ink and paper for printing out worksheets, I haven't spent anything. I use the internet, the library, and television (there's great documentaries!). There is a group on here that has links to curriculum. Just look for the one that has Home-school and Curriculum in it's name.
