Default Homeschooling links Part 1

This is what I have bookmarked after quick web searches. Please be aware that I have not visited all of these sites. Some are trying to sell you something, I'm sure. There's also some that go to .gov sites like the EPA ones and I will edit as I visit them and add new as I find them. Our homeschooling start is going to be compact, mobile and free for the first year because we're headed for rural parts in another State soon. Hence we'll be utilizing the internet. (As seen on foxnews special report about inaccurate, indoctrinating PS textbooks, Mel & Norma Gabler: Conservative Christian founders of Educational Research Analysts, website has the reviews and a "good" list of textbooks)

H.E.A.R.T Home Education After Righteous Teaching. (Florida Homeschooling org) You can homeschool. (Florida based)
