I'm still processing the doctor's visit on Friday. He spoke with Himself for a *long* time....and, the upshot is that he feels that Homeschooling IS the best option. (And he said "I *never* recommend homeschooling, but in this case, I do.") So......SG is freaking out about finances. The kids are so-so....Himself immediately started in with "It's my fault that we can't do X, or Y, or Z or...." and I had to step in - I mean, my job isn't going to be around much longer *anyway*. (And SG is fine with that thought, for some reason. It's just the sudden-ness, I think.....although being fired/laid off would be even MORE sudden.....)

I am scrambling around trying to figure out where to start. Himself wants to stay in school at least until Feb. 4 - his science class is doing a NASA project that he's just totally into. (This is good - it gives me at least 1 more pay-cycle to work with. 2, if I stay after the 1st, because I'd turn in my 2-weeks Feb. 1 and get paid the 15th.)

Texas is very liberal with Homeschooling. As long as I teach Reading (he's at a 12.3 reading level, so that's covered), Math, Grammar, and Good Citizenship (whatever THAT is), we're considered a private school and good to go. NO standardized tests, NO gov't oversight.....so, that's good. I just have to figure out What and How and how to do it on the cheap.

It's raining here, again. Gotta go stoke the fire and get back to google.

You already know I use AmbleSide Online... but their high school free curriculum (sister curriculum) is HEO - House of Education. Might be worth checking into.
