investigating homeschool

Hi my name is kim and i have three children, two of which i would like to homeschool.  With all the violence that the schools allow and the bullying with no control over it, this just seems to be the more logical solution. 

I still want to allow them to have and make friends but i dont know how to make that possible as they wont have the child to child interaction to create friendships.

I also dont know where to start.  The two children that I will be homeschooling are 4 and 3.  I work 40 hours a week outside of the home and then also go to school full tim online myself.  We live in Texas.  any advise on this matter would greatly work

Thank you

    We are in Texas too! We live in a very homeschool friendly state. We are considered a 'private' school. We are only required to teach reading, spelling, grammar, mathematics, and good citizenship.

    A good website to check out is https://www.homeschool-life.com/sysfiles/member/custom_public/custom.cfm?memberid=506&customid=4580

    Also there are a ton of blogs that offer free printables or preschool packs.

    Right now that your kiddos are 3 and 4, the focus is learning while playing :-).

    BTW we are in San Antonio
