I am so nervous about beginning hs this fall with my son.
Do you sit down one day or a week in the summer and plan out the year and how do you organize and keep track of what books you need that day (what if it's not checked in at the library?)
My church is having a free deal to give the kids haircuts and stuff, so i think my son may get a new outfit there (how neat), and I have gotten him a pencil case, and picked up a few arts & crafts things along the summer.

There are many different educational philosophies for home schooling. That is a good place to start. If your child is under 7 you may not need to worry about schooling at all. Most states don't require schooling until 7. You need to find out the laws in your state and what's available. I home schooled my kids in IN, they are now adults and we live in AZ. In AZ kids can "home school" using a free state online program.
The philosophy I used is called unschooling. I didn't use a curriculum or lesson plans. Children learn what they want at their own pace. There is a web site with home schooling info and discussion boards with home schooling moms. It's http://www.mothering.com/

"How about scheduling during the day? Do yall have a set schedule (brush teeth 1st, then this then the next thing to make it a habit?) "
We have a loose daily schedule that helps to keep us on track.
