We are a homeschooling family in Va. Beach, VA. We are new to homeschooling and new to this group! We have 2 boys, ages 3 and 11. I am feeling a little overwhelmed with all the choices in curriculum. We will officially start school on Sept. 7, 2010.

Welcome jpired :) We're also new to home-schooling and officially start on September 7th :) Our girls are 9 and 10 and attended public school from K - grds 3 & 4.

Welcome. I'm a newbie from VA too. We're near Charlottesville.

I'm still trying to figure out everything too! I have no official start date as my son's only 4 so we're doing preschool stuff. Mostly as it comes up at this point. I just kind of get sucked in when he wants to do something. This morning DS decided he wanted to put numbers together to make numbers (1 and 1 is 11, 2 and 3 and 4 is 234, etc.) so we did that and worked on writing numbers. So I guess I'm kind of unschooling at the moment. :)

PS: My son is also into asking something like, "what's 3 and 4?" and expecting the answer 7. So it's always kind of a guess as to what he wants when he wants to put numbers together.
