For anyone interested in a very well-designed, fun, thorough, packaged homeschool curriculum (this is our third year using it), you can visit K12.com. Furthermore, if you live near Seattle, San Antonio, or Raleigh, you can see and touch the curriculum and hear speakers describe its development at a K12 Expo conference:
We attended one of these conferences in San Jose 2 years ago and it was a blast for the whole family. I don't know if there will be similar activities in this year's versions, but when we went, the kids got to see a super-cool professional juggler, make great crafts, participate in a puppet show, write letters to encourage soldiers, and make new homeschooling friends. The adults got to meet Dr. Bill Bennett (former Secretary of Education and founder of K12) and listen to him speak (a real treat; he's clear, funny, and insightful). These conferences have separate tracks for people just considering the idea of homeschooling and those already homeschooling but interested in checking out a new curriculum. It's free.

I got a flyer for K12 seminars in the mail yesterday. Actually it was addressed to Ted. Not sure why we received one or where Ted's name was found. It looks interesting. We have our own style of schooling as a family. But the K12 has its appeal too, I must confess. :-).
