I would also do additional reading about homeschooling. The Homeschooling Book of Answers by Linda Dobson is an excellent guide for new homeschooling families, as is The Beginner's Guide to Homeschooling by Patrick Farenga. For step-by-step advice, try The First Year of Homeschooling Your Child: Your Complete Guide to Getting off to the Right Start also by Linda Dobson.
