that replied to my previous post titled "Confused :(", I GREATLY appreciate all of your wonderful advice. You all put a lot into perspective for me. I am sure we are now postive about our decision  to homeschool. Kids are growing up so fast these days and a lot of the time it's their peers at school to blame (like it or not). I want to keep her innocent and happy as long as I possibly can. "Normal" isn't always the right choice. Now if you sweet ladies would like to hand over tips, advice or anything to know about HS I would love to know! I am looking forward to what is to come for our family! Thanks again!

The thrift store is your best friend

Don't over buy! No matter how much you want to!

Keep it simple your first year.

Be pre pared for hours of planning

Before you start, figure out what kind of learner your kid is.

 That's great! Sometimes taking that first step toward homeschooling is the hardest step to take, but it is so worth it.

I agree with others who said don't buy too much stuff! At least in the beginning. It's tempting but just remember, you aren't trying to recreate the brick & mortar classroom experience. You're just trying to teach YOUR child.

 congratulations xoe!!! its very worth it!

tips: have fun!!! make learning fun for both of you, you dont have to teach the way the public school does(unless you want to) theres lots of other ways to go about it.

learn how your daughter learns,

what does she find interesting- let her explore it!
