But, back to homeschooling...anyone who has any experience in it... could you first tell me how to get started? And what all you need to do to fit the curriculum? And also if you'd wanna go into things like what you personally see as the positives and negatives about it I'd appreciate it. Thanks!!

Starfall.com is one and the kids seem to like it. Acclimate them to learning this way. Buy them any kind of learning dvd's and such now that are geared for their learning level. Give the child as much of a head start as possible. There was some kind of reading thing that was teaching very young kids to read that everyone was making a fuss about, I can't remember what it was called but it was on tv.
Kids get bored at home with homeschool so make sure you have something for them to do, join a group in your area that allows kids to do things together. It's a lot of work running around to the field trips and meetings and you will spend a more than you think in gas with that stuff but the kids need it. Unless you're lucky enough to have friends and family with kids that your child sees often enough to blow off steam.
Also having your kids at home lets you see their weaknesses and strengths that you may not hear about from the school since they sometimes just pass kids along. Anyway good luck.
