Is there a large homeschooling community where you live? Regular park days, reading groups, game days, etc? Perhaps you could start going to a few of the park days and bring your DH with you. We don't do those yet, because there are so many other homeschoolers close by. My oldest is only 3, but we've already made an effort to network with these local families with preschoolers to help give her a sense of continuity when her closest neighborhood friends go off to school (not the local public school coincidentally, all to private or charters).
