Homeschool record-keeping scared me, too. I have kids who want to go on to more education, and their interests vary widely. This is one of the perks of having so many children (diversity is fun!) but it also means one-size-does-not-fit-all and good records will be key in our students' ability to get into the schools they're interested in going to.
Lee Binz has so many great answers and all the experience to back them up. Her own two homeschooled sons went to the college of their choice on four-year, full tuition scholarships. She's quite qualified to give help!

And then go ahead and take a deep breath. Don't you love having homeschoolers who've gone before us and then turned to give the rest of us a hand? Thanks, Lee.
