Yes, homeschooling can even be a bit exhausting. Here our little five year old has run out of gas at the dinner table. A day of lessons followed by some good exercise outdoors left him all "tuckered out." He tends to keep going until he just cannot go anymore. When that time comes, he shuts down. On this particular evening we simply took him to bed and let him sleep. He awakened early the next morning bright-eyed and ready for another day. Most days he is awake and playing very early until it is time for the school day to start. We have purchased a DS game for him and he loves to play on that until it is time for school to start.
