I immediatly regret that decision.Anyway, here are some of the links I told you about.The Farm School-Various Yahoo groups-Homeschool magazine-http://www.secular-homeschooling.com/001/bitter_homeschooler.html - article from the magazine that is very funnyAs far as books, I would recommend "The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling" and "100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum." Both of them have a Christian slant to them, but they will help you decide on the best methods to use and good places to start looking for Curriculum.If there's anything I can do for you, please feel free to call me at 202-4032.John Kenney"Those who would give up essential liberty

Do you meet at the Sevierville park - where the pool is?
