Question Homeschooler Moms!

I want to know how to get going on making a plan to show the school. I want to start homeschooling my 16 yr old daughter. I am not sure how to get going here.. So, if someone who homeschools their child(ren) could please help me out. Where do I get a list of what curriculum I need and just where to begin..
That's the big question..
Where do I begin.. Step 1...?
Thanks.

        There is a homeschool planner out there. I have one. It's nice to have to show what you've done and to plan out activities, keep track of attendance and grades. I bet there are more planners out there since I got mine. have never had to look or buy another one because I kept master copies so I can copy sheets when I run out etc.

        Step 1: I would say step one would be to visit hslda.org to see what your state laws are concerning homeschooling.

        Step 2: Check to see if your state has a homeschooling conference this spring and register. You can visit with and talk with curriculum reps and attend the vendor hall to shop for curriculum. It can be overwhelming so do as much research before so you do not over buy. Be sure to ask your daughter what she wants to study so you choose the subjects she's interested in.

        Hope that gets you started and other homeschool moms respond as well.
