Homeschooling, anyone?

My daughter is thinking of homeschooling A, who is 8 and in the second grade. They live in Orlando. Where does she start? What support is there for homeschooling? How has it worked for you? Have your kids later gone to public schools? How about state-mandated testing? Like the SOLs (so appropriately abbreviated) in Virginia, and the FCATs in Florida (the first letter is also very appropriate, I think)?

Anyone have any experience? Cass does, and she's promised to write about it in her blog. I can't wait; Cass is the homeschooling goddess, in my humble opinion.

I anxiously await help! (Wait, isn't the Effexor supposed to take care of that anxiety? Bad time to be fiddling with the dose.)
