I know that I more than likely will not have to do anything this year since her Birthday is 7 days too late to go to public school here . But how or where do I find out what I need to do to officially homeschool ?  Also I was just wondering if there were any other mama's near me. I am about 30 miles from Dallas Texas.

I believe the website is www.hslda.com that has all the state official rules. I can't link at the moment, I apologize. But that is an awesome starting point to tell you what is required of you.

Believe it or not, there is nothing you have to do to homeschool in Texas! We just moved here about 8 months ago and I was shocked. It is one of the most liberal states as far as homeschooling goes.

Sorry, I am not close to the Dallas area, but there are huge numbers of homeschoolers in and around Dallas. Look for them on yahoo or even type it in to the search bar on CafeMom.

Good luck and enjoy the ride!

Look up the laws so that you know them in case someone gives you trouble

 I did my first 12 yrs or so of home educating in TX. It is an awesome homeschool state. You do not do anything. Do not report, test, anything.  You just need to teach your child.  They only say that you are to teach your child the basics .

I am in Forney , if I ever get another car maybe we can meet up when it cools down at the Zoo . I have been wanting to take the girls to the Zoo in Ft Worth and isnt there a cowboy/cowgirl museum there too ?

Yes that is great news ! I was pretty sure I did not have to do anything but wanted to be sure and wanted to find the laws and look them up anyway.
