it seems like 30 minutes a day for a homeschooler is not enough. I get that they learn through playing and exploring, but I think we will probably do a bit more than 30 minutes. I'm thinking like an hour to an hour and a half a day broken up throughout the day is our goal. It's kindergarten so i'm not totally set on that. we'll see how he does and go from there I guess
I agree ^

Once you start homeschooling it gets easier to decide how to do things. Watching how your son reacts to certain things will help determine how to modify(if need be) to fit his learning needs/style. That is what I love about homeschooling.
