Ask a Homeschooler

Tonight my children begged to watch the Super Bowl, so I sit here watching them get some new cultural knowledge. :-D

Tomorrow I'll be part of an "Ask a Homeschooler" panel at a local coffee shop. Four brave homeschooling moms will let members of the general public ask them questions about homeschooling. Ack!

As I prep I made a little hand-out with the information I most often pass on to new homeschoolers. It's by no means complete, but hopefully it will be of some use to some body.
Let me know if I left out your favorite resources.

And, wish me luck?
