My homeschooling expenditures for this year will come in a little under$450 once I order that Explode the Code subscription.  That’s still about two weeks of groceries.  There were a few reference materials that I could have even done without for now, but I decided to splurge.  This should pretty much take us through all of third grade (Bailey), and Kindergarten (Piper).  The only other expenses that might occur would be a few preschool workbooks if Katie (3) starts asking to do schoolwork.
