The one thing that I would differently is, I would have pulled my son from ps when he first starting having problems.
I would have listened to my instincts more about what I wanted our homeschooling experience to be like instead of what everyone else thought it should be.
Quoting Saraho5:I officially start hs'ing in a couple months... I can already tell that when I look back on this first year, I would've worried less! lol

nope theres nothing i would change if i could , wait maybe one thing, for the internet to have been around then would have been very nice!
i would do it the same, starting out with arts and crafts, and adding the rest of the subjects as they are ready
teaching them how they learn best either hands on, auditory, visual, mix,
teaching math hands on those first few years using manipulatives, and such
teaching the subjects with unit studies, charlotte mason, ecelectic, notebooking, worksheets, etc all mixed in !
I am not a veteran HS since I am just starting out with my daughter, but if I could go back, I would have HS my boys. They will be in 9th grade next year. If I could, I would start now, but DH does not want me to HS them this late.
I am just getting started as well. But I would have home schooled my two older boys,my oldest has such anxiety from elementary and high school that he thinks college will be the same and refuses to go . he wants to be a state trooper . My middle son is joining the Marines.
