My ds is 6 years old. We will continue 1st grade until september. I will then start 2nd grade. I need a good 2nd grade curriculum. The doe has a curriculum they send but i dont want them in my life. So i need to purchase one. If you ladies have any recommendations. I would appreciate it.

Curriculum is really based on what's good for you and your kids.  Really it's all subjective.

We use abeka for Language Arts, writing, and math, All About Spelling for spelling and My Father's World for Bible, history, science, art and music.

Christian or secular? Do you have a kinestetic learner? There is no one size fits all. For that age, we liked lots of library books and math games.

I didn't get the workbook.  I'm really good at making my own worksheets and I like to reinforce the scientific method with every single lab, so I just do my own for all of that.  But I do suggest it for anyone that doesn't have a solid science background and a good handle on making their own worksheets and lab sheets.

It really depends on your teaching style, and your child's learning style... 
We've really enjoyed so far:
Math U See,
All About Spelling & All About Reading
Story of the World was good, but it wasn't a fit for us
Science we're switching next year from Real Science 4 Kids (it just wasn't enough for my science minded children) to  Elemental Science (which it looks like if it isn't enough, I can easily add to with how its set up) 
Write Shop
Handwriting Without Tears
