I'm going to be homeschooling for the summer to try it out. So tired of moving place to place and have to deal with schools and my boys being depressed because their friends aren't there. So now we are making the descions to do this. Hubby and I are on the same page. By the time we find a more stable place they will be ready for school. We have a daughter on the way too:)

I have two people in the family that are going to school to become teachers so I have lots of resources to choose from.

Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Congratulations on your decision to home educate.  I have been at it for many yrs.  All but one of our 15 children have now graduated our home school.  Our kids are now 32 down to 14  :-)   We also have a whole slew of grandkids that are being educated at home.

 dariensmom, at this age its a good idea to play with them, teach them songs or poems(memorization), do arts and crafts, dance, lots of hands on stuff, games, read to them, hands on learning, have fun with them!

Be sure to check out your State Laws concerning home school because each state is different.  Here is an article that will help you with that, and much more How To Home School
