I think I will start trying to post on this board some, although we are not officially homeschooling yet. My son will be 4 in August. We don't plan to do anything formal until he's 6, probably.... we'll see....

Well, if you are political about it, and I am, you have been homeschooling since the day he was born! Welcome!

Welcome! I say you are totally a homeschooler. My daughter is 4 and though nothing is really formal, we just live life and love to learn, we do go to homeschooling functions and I consider her to be homeschooling. So any of what you are doing now will be teaching your kids to learn so you are definitely a homeschooler.
