You can check the HSLDA website for your local state laws. Some states require you submit your schedule and curriculum, and some don't care as long as your children are staying up to their set standards. In FL, for instance, I simply submit a standardized test for my children every year, and that's it.

Keep in mind that when home schooling, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking we have to do "public school" only at home. You don't have to know everything that your children are going to be learning. In today's world, you can find resources for everything they need. My son is taking math I can't comprehend, but is able to keep up with it through resources other than me.

Check to see if there is a home school co-op or support group in your area. Lots of times you can find other people who have skills in an area that you do not, and that you may be able to help teach something they are lacking.

Support groups also offer socialization opportunites for your children. We can't keep up with all the things available to home schooled children in our area. They offer team sports, swimming, band, martial arts, music, art, tennis lessons, name it, it's out there.

I salute you for wanting to do the best for your children! Hang around here and learn all you can. This is a wonderful place for support!
