I might have to re-ask my parents, but as I recall, you only have to show the state that you are educating your child at home and that counts as attendance.
It depends on the state. The restrictions and regulations on homeschoolers vary greatly state to state. Some have nearly nothing. You should start paying attention now when you are your age so you don't find yourself living somewhere with bad laws married to someone who thinks the public schools are fine. Take the long view and live somewhere free.

Thanks. I am actually married to a really great guy, and he and I have talked extensively about homeschooling; we have decided that when we have kids that we will either put them in a private Christian school or homeschool them. Unfortunately, we have no idea what state we might end up in, since he will be ordained as a Lutheran (LCMS) pastor in May 2013.
Usually the first call is picked for you by the seminary.
Thanks for the advice, though. When we started dating I mentioned that I someday wanted to homeschool my children and he started spouting “homeschool kids are sheltered and have no idea what the real world is like blah blah blah...”
Yeah, he’s lucky I didn’t dump him on the spot. He’s seen the light since then. :)
