Just curious if there were any other Homeschooling mama's out there. I mean obviously there are lol, just curious to talk to some others who also homeschool . What curriculum do you use. How many hours a day do you homeschool. What age group are your kids. That sort of thing :)

I don't home school but I was just about to post a question about it. Is there a certain level of education needed in order to home school? Or like a license you need to acquire?

I'm going to home school my daughter, but in Alabama the school age isn't until 7 so I haven't started yet with her cover/church school or any curriculum. I buy her Pre-school and Kindergarten books from Dollar tree that cover basics right now.

No, not in most states. You do have to meet with the Super of your school district and go over your plan, what curriculum you plan on using, and that sort of thing.

I homeschool my oldest DS. We use Abeka and whatever I can find. We homeschool from 8 am to 12 in the afternoon. Also when we do errands in the day time we use it as a lesson also ( example grocery shopping). Check out a website called HLSDA.org it helps a lot.

Every state has it's own laws. In Alabama the only law is that you must enroll the kid in a church/cover/umbrella school.

In Oregon, no. I don't assume that laws are nation wife anymore. But here there is nothing special required, like that.

Actually the legal age for all kids to have to start attending is 7, but you can start before that if you want.

We also use time for learning and just anything I can get my hands on.

The cover school I'm enrolling her with doesn't start before 6. I didn't know that 7 was the legal age all over. That's interesting. We recently signed her up for ABCMouse.com and she's loving it right now.

When I was in High School I did Colorado Virtual Academy which used K12 curriculum! I loved it.
