Getting Started with Homeschooling

Homeschooling curriculum, online studies, outside activities, boxed curriculum,

When I first started homeschooling 16 years ago, there wasn't nearly as many resources available as there are now! And there are so many that it can be overwhelming to a new homeschooler. I had to search and read and search and read so many times that it was exhausting! Oh how I would have loved to have one place that contained all the great resources I needed. So be sure to pin this post so you refer to over the years :). And if you have any good links that I should add in, please email me and I will add them to the list.
