I'm considering homeschooling, but haven't made a final decision yet. Next year I'll have a 4th grader, 1st grader and kindergartener. I have some random questions that have come up as I try to decide...
How hard is it to home school 3 kids who are all in different grades?
What curriculum do you use? Do you know of a curriculum that teaches Bible, but does not teach a specific denomination's view points?
Also, it seems that PA. is more strict about homeschooling than some other states. If you home school in PA., do your kids have to be doing the same things as public school kids each year-- or can you move at a faster or slower pace depending on your child's abilities? My oldest has lots of trouble in math, whereas my youngest is way above average- I just want to teach them at their own individual levels, rather than frustrating them into hating to learn (my oldest) or holding them back (my youngest)!

Thank you very much for your answer! I hadn't even thought about cyber schools, but my initial thought is that I like that idea much better than buying a curriculum packet and being largely on my own with how to proceed!

Next question overall
at what age do you switch your toddlers crib to the toddler bed?
