One of the greatest joys about homeschooling other than being able to take off anytime you want, is that you can still be you and homeschool. You don't have to make your own bread, and you don't have to get rid of your TV. Get this, you don't even have to wear a jumper! I was homeschooled for years, and I have never seen my mom wearing a jumper. She strongly dislikes them.
You can make your homeschool very "school-like" or you can un-school. You can use one curriculum, or you can mix and match. You can spend a fortune or getting everything as cheaply as possible over at Hillbilly Housewife. You can even send your kids to school and augment with stuff at home.
The important thing about homeschooling is that you will take responsability for your children's education. You will not leave them to anyone else to raise. You will be able to train them and guide them in their own budding spirituality. You will be able to just "take off" and spend a lazy day, in sweet fellowship. Housework can be a team effort. You will be the teacher they remember.
