First year homeschooling and I was wondering if this sounds like it would be enough. Using Comprehensive Curriculum Grade 1 for worksheets. Then the mailbox grade 1 for activities for each subject that are more hands on. And lastly getting a program online as well so Ds has a few different outlets for learning. I want to mention I try to make as many teaching moments as possible durring our everyday as well. Here are links to the two books

Sounds good to me. I'd add in tons of books from the library, plus educational videos & board games myself. I find that we tend to get through workbooks like that one much quicker than I anticipate. My kids quickly do the pages that they love, and we skip plenty that are just not challenging or too repetetive or just plain dumb. You may find yourselves done with the book before the year's over. But no sense in worrying much about that now. Have fun!

I think what you have planned sounds great! for
kindergarten I used mostly free resources from the internet. Learning page.com is an excellent site for printables, and with the "theme" units you can definitly incorporate books and projects. I spent very little money in the early years bc there's a wealth of free between the iternet and library! My advice is to ENJOY the "school time" but keep it short, and enjoy living and learning, and you'll be fine.
