Ds is not yet 5-1/2 and in kindy. He goes to school two days a week from 8:30 to 1:30 twice a week, and he has a fun, hands-on science class once a week. On homeschool days we do about two hours a day, stretched out over the whole morning. It sounds like a lot, but the school allots a TON of time for play (the whole socialization thing), and our homeschool mornings are scheduled in such a way that are taking lots of breaks, playing, having snacks, listening to music, etc.
And then there are all the questions he has
, activities we go to, projects he plans, books that he wants to read... well, that takes ALL. DAY. LONG.
