school supplies

I just went "shopping" for what it would cost for school supplies for my son. Who will be 3 in june and it will cost about $30 to $40 for some flash cards and alphabet board. I'm kind of excited to start teaching my son some more.

Also I found out that in order to homeschool my son I have to either have someone else teach him who is qulified or have 45 college credits which i over qulify for, I'll have 115+ when I am done. I also don't have to report him being homeschooled till he is 8, which gives me some extra years to get used to how to set up school planns and scheduals.

What state are you in? I've never heard of any state requiring anything but high school to homeschool.

That's what I was wondering. Just another way they are trying to regulate home schooling parents. Think about how many people that may exclude. Luckily both my husband and I together exceed that and we can also meet the requirement individually, but I'd be rather upset if we didn't.

Yeah I am, My parents think I'm nuts, but today just prooved to me I'm not. A kid at an elementary school brought a gun to school and shot a kid in my state. Once again I feel more like homeschooling is the way to go, I'm not saying it's the schools fault the kid got shot, but at least I will KNOW the majority of kids around my own and there parents. Plus this way I don't have to deal with the cr*p my parents went through with there kids, in public schools.

Here in Idaho we literally have to do nothing but teach our kids, ages 7-16, what they would be taught in the course of a public education.
