After recent events in our life, I am really considering homeschooling my ds. He is 6 and in the first grade, but at the beginning of the year tested into 3rd grade. I don't want to hold him back, but I want him to be able to enjoy his childhood. He goes to school as much as an adult working 40 hrs a week. He's on the bus by 7:30 and doesn't get home until 4. That's a long day!! This year we have let him join the swimming club which I thought would teach team work and discipline. My little man is tired as swimming is from 6-7:30 on Mon and Wed. Of course you can't really eat dinner before swimming, so that leaves us rushing for dinner, shower, and teeth brushing before his 8:00 bedtime. Has anyone considered homeschooling? Or do you have advise on homeschooling?
